Storyline

A psychiatric patient is haunted by dreams of abduction and abuse from the perspective of an abducted boy. The psychiatric patient stops taking his medication and the dreams and visions become even more disturbing. He will never have peace as long as the boy's little sister is in the company of the brutal abductors. The child's fate seems to rest in the hands of the outpatient girlfriend whose main objective is to bomb the phone company, convinced they are guilty of mass mind control. Together, two chemically imbalanced lovers struggle to see truth amidst the delusions of mental illness and stand alone in their attempt to rescue the abducted girl. Written by Steven Gillilan

WOW!
17 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Every once in a while, a film comes along that for some reason, just blows you away. This was that once in a while. I saw this film at the Dances with Films Festival in Los Angeles and I just couldn't believe my eyes. I think the thing that impressed me most was that this was a film done by first time writer/director/ producer with a "no-name" cast, shot in 18days, 2 months after 9/11 and the cast was from NYC! Sabrina Gennarino was simply spellbinding, I couldn't take my

eyes off her! And Tony Tsendeas and Shelley McPherson were just brilliant. If you get a chance, see this movie! And please, no comparing to a film with a

budget and time. Just Raw-Friggin-Talent that will, like fine wine, get better and better and better and...you get the picture. And what a powerful and brave thing Steve Gillilan did after the viewing. You go Steve! What a breath of fresh air honesty is. Visually amazing as it was shot in the Fall in Baltimore. I gotta tell ya...I wonder what you all could do on a real budget. I hope to find out

someday.
