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

The Mind Can Be A Dangerous Thing
17 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely LOVED this movie. I just finished watching it on TV and it was great. The storyline was excellent. The ending left me wanting to watch more and see what happens though. Another movie should be made to let me (and others) know what happens to these people. To the makers of this movie - GREAT JOB!!! Keep making movies like this. The idea of people being out there that can actually do this is a little scary. It will make me wonder if anything I THINK is private. It would be very interesting to be able to do this - not necessarily on a regular basis, but on an as needed basis.It would help to know who is lying and who isn't. It could be a potential dangerous thing as well as a beneficial thing.
