Animated documentary about Oliver from Tallin who in his younger years suffered bouts of schizophrenia.

Oliver suffers from schizophrenia. In his life imagination and reality create one world, where it is hard to resist being dragged into the illusion, but even harder to get out of it. Every day he lives with the threat of falling back into psychosis. Living in Space is a mix of documentary and animation.
