Mark is running from a past plagued by disturbing schizophrenic episodes… three women who each hold a different key to his freedom from torment… and a dark and mysterious being who threatens his entire reality, and worst yet – all the people in it.
Mark mistakenly imagines that his release from a mental hospital represents a fresh start. He soon discovers, instead, that his struggles with schizophrenia are about to get much, much worse. As his mind spirals out of control, Mark suspects his sexy roommate and his best friend of conspiring to have him re-committed, and begins to insist that his condition is a result of an implant that puts him in communication with a sinister extraterrestrial race.
The one person who can save him from losing the battle against his mental illness is Abby – a beautiful psychologist with a few demons of her own. But when Mark’s mysterious tormentor offers him a murderous solution to all his problems, can Abby stop him from succumbing to what may only be a terrifying figment of his imagination… before it’s too late?
