A mentally disturbed man, who roomed with the late Norman Bates at the state lunatic asylum, inherits the legendary Bates Motel after the death of Norman and tries to fix it up to make it a respectable business.
When we first meet Sonny (Mitch Hara), we see that he is on the edge. We watch as he takes a series of drugs, concluding with a drag on a cigarette. He uses a handgun to press the buttons on a phone to call his friend, Six (Lori Petty). Then starts talking to her with the gun in his mouth. He convinces her to come see him. When she arrives, they begin a playful argument about their games of make-believe that turns violent as Six leads Sonny to the truth of a horrible accident that Sonny has tried to avoid.
The quick cuts, flashbacks, and camera motion mirrors Sonny's franticness, which is very well portrayed by Mitch Hara. We feel that we are being spun around in a circle. However, the editing becomes distracting, and the order of some events gets lost. The last scene reveals a key fact that some may miss since the scene is so brief. While we learn the price some people pay when they don't deal with a tragic event, we have to go through an experience that is too intense.
