Elyse languidly meanders out of a cold, concrete, designer house mirroring
a mausoleum, externalizing the spirit of her dead son, Cody. She returns
home disoriented, unwilling to join the family dinner, misconceives the
gathering as a threat to her private life, and is unwarrantedly infuriated
with her egocentric mother, Goldie, and her devoted husband, Steven. In a
psychotic blackout, Elyse commits vehicular manslaughter of her son and his
nanny, Julia. Elyse isn’t the only victim; her delusional thinking,
narcissism, and violence annihilate her husband. Memory and hallucination
intertwine to expose a history of trauma, revealing the truth: Elyse is
Catatonic and institutionalized in a State Hospital. It’s the care from Dr.
Lewis and the unconditional love from her nurse, David, that promise Elyse
a new life.
