“Hi, my name is Ida. I am 24 years old. I have been told I am different. I have emotionally unstable personality disorder. I either love you or hate you. I hope you feel the same. Actually, I hope you aren’t like me.” That is the way we are introduced to Ida’s video diary, which she filmed over a period of eight years. She documents life with borderline personality disorder. Some days she is full of joy and ready to embrace the whole world; other days she is crippled with anxiety and delusions. She displays the scars on her body from self harming, her journey through therapy sessions and life in a psychiatric ward. But we also see happy birthday celebrations, excursions amid Norway’s beautiful landscapes and an undiminished will to live in this candid, courageous and inspiring film.
