After her doctor goes out of town for the week, Faith finds herself out of her Psychotropic medication. As she begins to suffer severe withdrawals, she falls into an utter tailspin of deterioration. She's lost her job, left her boyfriend and now checked herself into a hotel, where she is sure she is being followed. Is she losing her mind? Or could it be the same people who came looking for her father years ago? Written by Austin Musick and Damian Perkins

I thought this was really great! We need more thought-provoking movies like this! It makes an important statement.

This movie has an extremely powerful message to communicate. The message, as I perceived it, is that the so-called treatments being pushed by psychiatrists and even medical doctors for mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, etc. are arguably even more dangerous and debilitating to the person than no treatment. The cast did an amazing job and I felt a close connection emotionally with the main character, who was going through hell without her "medication." I left the screening thinking how vital it is that we come up with more effective treatments for people in trouble, mentally. This is something that effects all of us in this society. Well done to all who were involved in this project!
