As a brain cancer survivor who was given an 8% chance of survival, I have been on many unique adventures and often feel as if I have lived multiple lives. Mad World follows a woman on a journey of self-discovery and growth through five different worlds. She meets many flamboyant characters who begin to shape her perspective and allow her to find her true self. This is a story for anyone, young or old, who wants to adventure outside of their comfort zone and eliminate any self-doubt. I hope every viewer can find a bit of themselves in Mad World.
