The subject has made his way to the psychiatric ward and is now under the supervision of the hospital psychiatrist. As the doctor investigates what happened to the frightened amnesiac patient, his own sanity is pushed to the edge as it becomes clear that the patient has in fact died and brought something terrible back from the other side. Shane Carruth, director of PRIMER and the 2013 CUFF Best Narrative Feature Winner UPSTREAM COLOR, stars in this supernatural thriller from director Billy Senese.
