Immersive, Spell binding and Thought Provoking
1 February 2018 | by atowntommySee all my reviews

This is an example of how good story telling can take you away from our every day life.

Robin Williams is amazing as an eccentric audio engineer who is initially accused of convincing a fast food manager to abuse one of his employees. From there, there allusions to the Stanley Milgram experiments and ideas that appeal to Detective Munch.

Now wanting to issue any spoilers as there are twists and turns. A really superior piece of drama.
