Fourteen year old Cameron is suffering from schizophreniform – a temporary form of schizophrenia.  Medication helps but leaves him feeling flat and disconnected.  When he doesn’t take the medicine, his inner companions include two male voices – one compassionate and logical, the other more dangerous who goads Cam into actions that may get him into trouble.  And lately, there has been a third voice – a female who Cam is falling in love with.  If he takes his meds, his inner voices are gone and so is the girl.  But he finds a real life girl who has feelings for him.  A rather unusual love triangle indeed. Cameron must decide which world to live in.
