Trapped in a system that is struggling to cope, even her loving boyfriend (Van Vicker) and childhood best friend (Alison Caroll... "The Kids", "Doghouse", "Lara Croft model") seem powerless to help her.What are the dark forces that surround Amina, is she a victim of circumstances or one of life's unfortunate people? Is she actually crazy at all?
Only one man, her psychiatrist (Wil Johnson.. "Adulthood", "In a Better World"), cares enough to find out, but he must first convince his boss (Vincent Regan.. "Clash of the Titans", "300", "Troy") that his unorthodox approach will work. The only problem is he must overcome his own demons before he can help Amina confront her tormented past and guide her to finally face her future with hope.
