What did you think of this film?



In this exploration of grief, memory and hallucination intertwine to expose a history of trauma, revealing the truth: Elyse (Lisa Pepper) is catatonic and confined to a State Hospital.

Elyse is not the only victim; delusional thinking, profound narcissism, and violent behavior gradually annihilates her husband, Steven (Aaron Tucker).

Elyse’s recovery is reliant on the Chief of Psychiatry, Dr. Lewis (Anthony Hopkins), the restoration of the relationship with her mother (Fran Tucker), and the forgiveness of the surrogate daughter, Carmen (Tara Arroyave). Ultimately, it’s the love of a nurse, David (Anthony Apel), that promises her a new life.
