The secretary Liza Raines becomes deaf after a shooting in a robbery, is evicted and later she is found by the social assistant Grant Kane living in her car. Grant brings Liza to a Transition Shelter to be rehabilitated, and she accepts to be submitted to an experimental treatment never tested in humans in the Center for Hearing Research. The leader of the research Dr. Gene Kramer is pressed by the CIA agent Aiden Porter that is funding his experiment to test his vaccine of restoration of cells in fifteen patients, and he advises that the rats subjected to the experiment became psychotic. The patients also become psychotic and suicidal, with the exception of Liza, the patient 14. She achieves the ability of hearing frequencies emitted by the brain and read minds as a side effect. Porter recruits Liza to work in CIA disclosing the innermost thoughts of the suspects, but later Liza finds his real hidden intentions. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


When the police shoot the boy in the school and are right next to Liza, she doesn't react to the loud nearby gunfire even though she has "super" hearing. Ironically, it was a gun fired near to her ears that first damaged her hearing, thus causing her to try the experimental drug that gave her "super" hearing. See more »

pretty good
31 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Patient 14 is a pretty good movie about a woman (Lucy Jenner) who becomes deaf after a tragic circumstance. She undergoes an experiment covertly sponsored by the government to regain her hearing, and she does. The only problem is now she can hear so well that she can hear sounds no one else can including the thoughts of other people! What happens next changes her life dramatically.

Jenner is very good and convincing as a newly deaf woman upset and frustrated with having just lost her hearing. John York does an excellent job as the social worker and there is fun chemistry between the two of them. Patient 14 premiered on Lifetime last night. I recommend it if you happen to see it.
