Suicidal impulses, hyper sexuality, recurring nightmares-these are only a few of the symptoms of bipolar disorder. But what is it like for families of bipolar children and teens? This documentary takes viewers inside five households ravaged by the illness, revealing painful dilemmas over medication, school, and family dynamics. Weary of her tantrums, Liv's parents have twice hospitalized her. Siblings Annie and Casey were a high-risk adoption and, sadly, Annie's sickness shows why. The mother of Jessica and Matt fears she'll outlive them, while Andrew requires intensive private tutoring and siblings Levi, Dana, and Asher all take meds with disturbing side effects. Experts in bipolar disorder are also featured
