About

Patrick is a warm, open, twenty-six year old virgin schizophrenic.  Pills and his mother’s protection mean he is no threat to himself or anyone else.  Until he falls in love. The object of his desire, Karen, a suicidal flight attendant, has no idea the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living.  Patrick’s obsessive mother Maura doesn’t realize her own misguided love may be more dangerous than hate.  To pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of dysfunctional detective Freeman, who will use his position to help her, for a price. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right to intimacy for everyone, Patrick’s Day proves, when it comes to love, we’re all a little crazy.
