Peter Greene is excellent as a schizophrenic loner who drifts across the country searching for his daughter and who may (or may not!) be a child murderer, whilst being pursued by a detective. The film takes you inside the fractured mind of a schizophrenic, by clever use of cinematic effects and some scary sound effects, and is considered by many to be one of the most realistic film portrayals of this disorder ever made.
