Benjamin Teel, a paranoid schizophrenic whose mind has been clouded for years with dangerous delusions, believes he is responsible for the murder of millions. Millions who now want him to pay for his sins.

Within his mental chaos he finds a singular lifeline in his daily sessions with psychiatrist Carolyn Wakefield. She offers him comfort and understanding, and slowly the boundaries of their relationship start to blur.

But dependency is a dangerous thing, and for Benjamin the line between friendship and obsession is fickle. When Carolyn announces her case reassignment, the voices in Benjamin’s head start screaming, and in the din, who can tell the difference between reality, and murderous delusion.
