Nine real actors with genuinely wounded psyches are brought together for a group session of psychodrama, or "The Process," in filmmaker Richard Greenberg's 2003 documentary aptly entitled The Process. Led by renowned psychotherapist and psychodramatist Dr. Tian Dayton, the nine wounded souls are guided through the experimental form of therapy's exercises -- which primarily revolve around a number of role-playing strategies -- in order to gain insight to the various abuses, addictions, or demons that have haunted them prior to attending this meeting. Over the course of the film's 70 minutes, Dayton assists in bringing all of her patients to a cathartic acceptance of their troubled pasts, which the doctor maintains will help them regain their long-lost vitality.
