Laura Marchildon
As a young boy, 13-year-old Robin, begins fighting an internal battle with himself and “others”. Many voices are bombarding him; Satan, his minions, and “Hugh”.
Religion plays a very important part in his family’s lives. His parents try ignoring his new odd behaviours, then scolding, eventually, much to their embarrassment, they bring Robin to the hospital as his physical and mental and behavioural systems escalate. At his point he is introduced to a very kind and understanding psychiatrist.
