A stylish psychological thriller of duplicity, dance, and the descent into madness. When a soft-spoken young writer, Morris Monk (Justin Kirk) – inadvertently committed to an asylum for years due to a systems glitch – is released into the “real” world, his writing begins to blur the boundaries of reality and paranoid hallucination and his therapist, Dr. Patricia Farrow (Catherine Kellner) begins to suspect she has unleashed a ruthless murderer.
