Storyline

Thirty-two year old Winnipeger Joel Rothman's personal life falls apart after his wife, Mari, catches him cheating. Following, he can't sleep which affects the parenting of his adolescent daughter Jenny. A therapist, he dismisses the work of counseling his patients. Because of his poor work, his Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), his employer, wants to transfer him to the small town of Gimli, which he doesn't want both for his own sake and Jenny's. As such, he begins to do whatever he can for his three remaining patients - Victor Koblinsky, Chandra Mergulhao and Sophie Winters - who he counsels in group therapy. Although each of the three has a different issue with which they are dealing, each does suffer from delusional thoughts the result of post-traumatic stress syndrome. Joel is under pressure from the HMO to certify all three, despite his assurance that all three are getting better. Ultimately, Victor, Chandra and Sophie have to convince him of what is reality and what is ... Written by Huggo

An Insomniac's Dream about REALITY
10 March 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Just like the main character's circumstances are a mixture of contrasts, so is the movie: it has unmistakable indy roots & feel, yet the way it's made is very professional. It could easily pass as a Hollywood production to someone watching it on FastForward. It also has a rather large range of moods, ranging from funny, to violent, to delicate, and even to depressing. But although the main character is a shrink (or a shrink wannabe), and you'll get to learn more about post-traumatic stress disorder than you would in a full-year psych course, the director manages to stir it into entertaining territory with ease.

I watched it in a late night sneak preview at University of Toronto, and I was lucky to have a Q&A with the director, who answered most of my questions even before I asked them (he's a psychic more than he is a psycho). Apparently, he found inspiration in his very own Yoko Ono, who's also a psych major :)
