In a kitchen, somewhere in West Wales, a war veteran called Zach has withdrawn into a box.
A friend called Ieuan arrives, offering recovery in the form of dialogue and a capsule containing 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine. He’s participated in trials for treating chronic PTSD with psychedelic drugs, and says he’s cured.
What follows soars into a psychoactive dream of delirium, trauma and supermarket shopping as the two men are parachuted into their own fractured pasts; their symptoms expressing the pathologies of a disturbed world.
Give Me Your Love is the second installment of Ridiculusmus’ three-pronged investigation into innovative approaches to mental health. Informed by the latest scientific research, it explores the healing potential in altered states of consciousness.
