European Premiere Well educated Vishwa has a successful career in advertising and a beautiful wife, Samadi. But he suffers from severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which he conceals from the world on a daily basis. He fears that his own urine is contaminating everything around him. Unable to endure his eccentric and strange behaviour, Samadi leaves him and moves in with her parents. Lonely Vishwa loses his job and descends into a life of prescription drug abuse. His illness and addiction escalate, leaving him with no choice but to admit himself to a mental hospital for treatment to overcome his fear and win his wife back, knowing there will be heavy social consequences in a culture that greatly stigmatises mental illness. Told with heart and humour, this beautiful true story is based on co-director Vindana Ariyawansa’s own experience of suffering from OCD and shows that sometimes love is the prescription. Sinhala With English Subtitles.
