In the presence of producor Tim Palmer
Born on 17th March, Patrick is a warm, open, twenty-six-year-old virgin schizophrenic. Pills and his mother's protection mean Patrick is no threat to himself or others. Until he falls in love. The object of his desire, Karen, a suicidal flight attendant, has no idea that the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living. Patrick’s obsessive mother Maura doesn’t realize her own misguided love may be more dangerous than hate. To pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of dysfunctional detective Freeman. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right to intimacy for everyone, Patrick's Day proves that, when it comes to love, we're all a little crazy.
