Murder And Misunderstanding


Murder and Misunderstanding offers unparalleled insight into the experience of paranoid schizophrenia.

This true story is narrated from the first person perspective of an All-American suburban kid as he fights his way through intense auditory hallucinations and schizophrenia.

Shubi Sem was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania as the only son of hard-working immigrants.  He went to a selective private school, lived in a nice house in the suburbs, and was raised believing in the family creed of hard work.

As he began to take more and more responsibility in running his family’s businesses, Shubi’s strained relationship with his dad ultimately set in motion a chain of events which led to a downward spiral.  Shubi began to have auditory hallucinations and then wrestled with schizophrenia for years, falling further into madness, murder… and misunderstanding.

For anyone who has wondered what schizophrenia feels like to experience or what the schizophrenic reality is like from the inside, this first hand account will be an eye opener.
