Storyline

It's Dark Here is the true story of Jason Tennies, an extremely gifted and accomplished young man -- a black belt in karate, a college student, a talented musician and most especially, the beloved only child of David and Linda. When Jason inexplicably and without warning suffers a schizophrenic break, his parents scramble desperately to get him the help he requires. In five short days, they must watch helplessly as their beloved son disappears before their eyes. As they endure this nightmare, they cannot help but reflect on happier times and what might have been while also facing the potential outcome for their family. Written by Anonymous

Authentic movie
4 December 2018 | by dlgray-56256See all my reviews

A beautiful, well told story full of emotion and honesty about a loving family confronted with the reality of the sudden onset of mental illness. As a person who lives with the effects of mental illness every day, I could relate to this movie on a deeply emotional level. As someone who knows the parents personally, this movie helped me to understand how this experience continues to affect their daily lives. I highly recommend this movie. Be prepared to be touched by this moving and heartbreaking story.
