Storyline

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?

Goofs

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 »

Irritating to watch
3 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The premise that a person could hear other peoples thoughts all the time would of course be distressing to the person involved, however, the way that it's implemented into this film is that you, the viewer, have to listen to the same constant babble of peoples thoughts while trying to work out what is being discussed in the current conversation.

Trying to listen to several different voices at once and trying to understand what they are all saying makes this film a very stressful one to watch. Ideally you'd just pay attention to the main conversation but they're at a volume that makes this just not possible.

To be honest, I didn't watch this film all the way through, I can't recommend it.
