Patrick's Day

Patrick is a warm, open, twenty-six year old virgin schizophrenic. Pills and his mother’s protection mean he is no threat to himself or anyone else. Until he falls in love. The object of his desire is Karen, a suicidal flight attendant who has no idea the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living. Patrick’s obsessive mother, Maura, doesn’t realize her own misguided love may be more dangerous than hate. To pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of dysfunctional detective, who will help her, but for a price. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right to intimacy, Patrick’s Day proves, when it comes to love, we're all a little crazy.
