Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Soon after his wife leaves him as a result of an impulsive extramarital fling, the life of a young psychotherapist comes crashing down around him in a series of bizarre incidents in this illusionary drama from Canadian director Sean Garrity. Ever since his wife disappeared from his life, Joel Rothman (Jonas Chernick) has had trouble sleeping. As the insomniac psychotherapist spends his nights drawing sheep on the wall and endlessly looping his wife's angry voice message, his relationship with his young daughter grows increasingly distant and his work begins to suffer. From the aggressive Victor (Callum Keith Rennie) to the deeply depressed Chandra (Michelle Nolden) and the nightmare-plagued, prescription drug-addicted Sophie (Lindy Booth), all of Joel's patients seems to be getting gradually worse on his watch. Now faced with the very real prospect of losing his job, Joel attempts to hold on to his slipping sanity long enough to make sense of his rapidly deteriorating mental state.
