A portrait of Daniel Paul Schreber, a successful lawyer who, in 1893, started to receive messages from God via a "Writing Down Machine" that spanned the cosmos. For nine years, he was confined to an asylum where he was tortured by delusions of cosmic control, suffering from the belief that he was shifting gender and that his body was subjected to cruel "miracles." He believed if he gave into God's plan to change him into a woman he would save the world. During his time at the asylum, he wrote "Memoirs of My Nervous Illness" which earned him lasting fame as an outsider artist.
