Moon Jones, the filmmaker behind the cult-classic Master P film I'm Bout It, wrote and directed this tense thriller about an uncle racing against time to protect his nephew. Within the walls of the Magnolia Mental Institution, an inhumane psychiatrist subjects the hospital's patients to dangerous experiements and she's especially ruthless with those residents who attempt to escape. As the janitor, Percy has been witness to these acts and is understandably concerned when his disturbed nephew goes missing from the institute. Now, Percy must track down the young man, before the doctor does.
