Through the thoughts and dreams of Frank Thomas, Conflicting Sanity offers a vicarious medium for soul-searching. From the simplicity of childhood to a vortex of strained emotion, Frank unwittingly immerses himself into emotional isolation as an adult. His adolescence seems idyllic spending hours at a time at the beach with his Aunt Blanch. But you can not stay young forever. Frank must deal with the stress of his father's death, his training as an independent psychotherapist, and his young nephew's life-threatening illness. He also struggles with interpersonal relationships and observes that a lack of passion has been adopted by the masses. He is ultimately consumed with questioning who is sane and what makes for a functional philosophy on how to lead his life.
