Andrew's mother, helpless to control her son and fighting an addiction of her own, refuses to watch idly as her only child destroys himself. As a last resort, she hires a private company to forcibly kidnap and confine him in a locked-down and corrupt psychiatric hospital.

I saw this film at the Santa Fe Film Festival and it was by far the best film that I saw at the festival. I haven't seen acting like that in an independent film before. In fact, this film has some of the best ensemble acting I can remember seeing in many years. I would put this film right up there with the best films I have seen this year including Crash and The Constant Gardener. If you have the chance to see this film you should definitely see it because the odds are that you will be moved by it, as was I. It's refreshing to see a film with so much heart put into it. Congratulations to all the actors and especially to the director. I'll be keeping my eyes open for your next movie.
