Storyline

John finds himself in the psychiatric ward of a hospital with amnesia. He is the chief suspect in a criminal investigation, an explosion at a local oil refinery. Doctors Crenvalt and Utterborg are charged with evaluating John's ability to answer questions that Detective Bonell has about the explosion. When John claims that he is from another planet, one doctor thinks he's lying to avoid prosecution; the other thinks he may be mentally ill. A nurse who lost her father in the refinery explosion is willing to risk everything to make sure that John doesn't get away with murder. Written by Christopher R. Keller

Entertaining short
9 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short at the Maryland Film Festival, May 2006 and throughly enjoyed it. Assumption was shown with a group of other scifi/fantasy shorts. It easily had the loudest applause. James Denton was great in the lead as a man who may or may not be crazy. He plays both sides well enough that you want to believe his story but you aren't quite sure if he is truthful. Beyond the plot summary I can't give any more information with out ruining the film. It was clear that this short was made with the hopes of becoming a feature film. This was confirmed in an answer and question discussion after the viewing with the writer/director. The film was well done but definitely low budget in appearance. There is room for more character development and action but overall if this does become a full length feature I would certainly buy a ticket.
