We will be offered a rare insight into the complete and overwhelming experience when manic impulses begin taking over our bodies.  Each film features a series of people diagnosed with a particular Impulse Control Disorder - from Erotomania, Pyromania and Egomania - and explores just how far their compulsions can really go. Using a mixture of dynamic stylistic devices and computer-generated imagery, each film attempts to recreate a warped world as seen through their eyes. Whether it involves starting fires, exploding with violent rage or getting insanely turned on, each is tempted by ordinary life to do extra-ordinarily bad or dangerous things. But what makes them do it?"   Programme consultant and contributor.
