Dir: Angella Davis

They created a world where nothing mattered but their explorations….

Siegfried Morton a psychologist at Whitemore Psychiatric Facility meets his new patient, a provocative, yet vulnerable woman in sex-addict recovery, recently hospitalized for attempted suicide.

Sexually fixated and intrigued by the woman, the oppressed Siegfried transfers his "resiliency factors" studies from rats onto a much more tantalizing subject. How much can a person take of his cruel and unethical "experiments" until she breaks?

Or perhaps it is Siegfried who did not anticipate his own vulnerability in this process...
