Matt Lacey is in a mental health facility recovering from a breakdown.
To work through his myriad of conflicting thoughts and feelings, he writes. He unwinds the story of his teenage years with the beautiful, impassive, fierce Christina.
As Matt tries to unlock the secrets of his past, he has to learn, finally, to look directly at the pain and love that have made him what he is now.
Shamelessly wearing its heart on its sleeve, Electric and Mad and Brave is a heightened and technicolour story about the soaring joy and numbing nightmare of being young and hopelessly in love.
