Synopsis: Admitted is a dark comedy that sheds light via first person perspective on the stigma surrounding mental health. It is set in a state-funded health facility, and follows Lili, a strong-minded woman who willingly admits herself in-patient. Now on her second suicide attempt, she is patiently waiting to get well while steadily continuing to lose her mind. Her stay, which could be a few days to several weeks, is sweetly shortened by a new set of friends within the facility’s confines.
