Dr Nadine Lavoie has helped her patients through their share of psychiatric problems. Too bad she isn't as good at handling her own problems. Her drug-addicted daughter Lisa lives on the streets. She barely speaks to her only living relative, her brother Robbie. Except for a few friends, she's very much alone.
Now working at a psych hospital Nadine meets Heather, a suicidal woman who happens to have lived in the same cult Nadine did as a child. What secrets from the cult are buried within Nadine's mind?
A chance encounter with
asuicidal patient unleashes Nadine's repressed memories, and she explores the origin of these mental images hoping to find the cause of her own debilitating claustrophobia. As memories come flooding back, she reaches out to people from her past, specifically during a summer of her childhood spent on a commune with a charismatic leader, Aaron. Despite Nadine's best efforts to have him charged for the abuses he subjected her to, Aaron uses his influence to scare her into submission. But Nadine is not easily deterred by threats, especially when her addict daughter Lisa becomes Aaron's newest target. As she struggles to come to terms with the horrific things that occurred on the commune, the danger escalates and the dramatic conclusion forces everyone to come to terms with the atrocities Aaron committed.
