Short movie made at Harvard University, NYFA Summer Camp, filmed with Canon DSLR, edited with Adobe Premiere Pro. This movie explores the psychologically disturbing imagery of a girl suffering from schizophrenia and the way she has to deal with distorted memories of her past and present reality. Her own childhood figure, the teddy bear, becomes the master of all her malevolent delusions, haunting her as she struggles to overcome the vile disease which consumes her to the depths of her poor, demented soul.
