The bipolar culture of Internet companies sets the stage for the psychological journey of Madeline Bergen, a mercurial photo archivist struggling with bipolar disorder. Frustrated by the numbing effects of her anti-depressants, Madeline cuts off treatment, triggering extreme and unexpected behavior that coincides with the dramatic rise and fall of the stock market. Finding herself thrust in the middle of a corporate takeover crisis and the mystery of an unidentified photograph of a legendary radical activist, Madeline ultimately must choose between her own life and the exhilarating ride of mania.
