Maniac is a Norwegian dark comedy about a 30-something man named Espen, who lives every day to the fullest and is beloved by all. At least that’s what he believes. In reality, Espen is an institutionalized man who copes with his tragic circumstances by escaping into his own mind. While Espen lives his life in his fantasy world where he is always the hero, his psychiatrist, Mina, works tirelessly to try and snap him back to reality – if only he could stop envisioning himself as the star of his own play.
