Storyline

May Oster, played by Athena Lebessis, is a beautiful, pensive, somber woman in her mid twenties; a beautiful woman that discovers her boyfriend's bloody scarf in her apartment following a black-out episode. This unearthed white scarf covered in crimson drives May to attempt suicide. May is taken to a psychiatric ward under the care and influence of Dr. Ballard, a fifty-eight year old psychiatrist/acclaimed author, played by Eric Roberts. May is immediately thrown into seclusion. Detective James Harding, played by Jake Busey, appears to question May about a horrific murder. This questioning thrusts May into narrating an in-depth story about an unnamed woman's involvement with unsavory characters leading to multiple murders. Will May regain her sanity, restore her normal life and unravel the mystery of her true love? Only time will tell. Written by Anonymous

This movie is for intelligent viewers who can follow the plot twist and turns - if you can't, you get lost and miss the great elements
20 April 2015 | by lauriedelpinoSee all my reviews

I beg to differ with the previous reviewer. My feeling from the very outset of viewing this psychological thriller was that I had better keep my intellect sharp throughout the film as the plot twists and turns were plentiful and not obvious. I feel that the lead actress who plays May, Athena, does a powerful job of keeping us on the edge of our seats with her intense and quite convincing psychological pain. To be in a situation where you would not be believed about your observations about a person in power (Eric Roberts) would cause intense angst ; which she clearly showed. This is definitely a movie that intelligent and emotionally evolved individuals would appreciate. To be able to "keep present" with the pain and obvious "detachment from self" that the main character was going through takes both mental and emotional stamina. As Mirabai Starr, the author of The Dark NIght of the Soul would say to May -" step around the poisonous vipers that slither at your feet, attempting to throw you off your course. Be bold. Be humble. ... Ask no permission from the authorities. Slip away." from The Interior Castle by Mirabai Starr. Unfortunately, May was unable to "slip away". The Doctor, played by Eric Roberts certainly convinced me that he was a devious, sick psychiatrist using and abusing his authority to get into the minds of his helpless victims and even attempt to pin murders on them in their vulnerable states. It actually brings forward a very important issue in society today; the abuse of Doctors in positions of power. People like May go to Doctors to get help and assume these Doctors are ethical. It's obviously not always the case. After all, there are always "jackals" out there. In conclusion, this movie really made me think. I thought the directing was excellent, I was totally convinced of the sick nature of the Doctor played by Eric Roberts and Athena was a very convincing vulnerable psychiatric patient. As a former English Professor, I would love to have my students view this thriller to see if they can untangle the multiple levels of plots and talk about the need for more checks and balances in mental health professionals.
