Continuing right where “5150: A Transfer” left off, “Half” recounts the ongoing saga of Ethan Lloyd and his bid to break free of the mental health system while continuing the slow healing process. Ethan befriends Michael G. Page, a complex character suffering from a much milder case of mental illness. Michael helps Ethan regain his sense of self and personal freedom that he lost in the hospital.

Half takes place in a very real location – Conard House, a Victorian Mansion in Pacific Heights converted into a halfway house for mental patients. The house, perched high atop the hill above Cow Hollow, provides an ironic contrast to the fate of the clients who live there. For many, this will be the only mansion they will ever call home.

There are setbacks. Ethan suffers from occasional relapses of paranoia, hallucinations and medical mismanagement. Despite these obstacles, he plans to escape to Mexico with his new crush, Chance.
