Synopsis
Alice, 38, spends her days sleeping. Working nights at a rehabilitation center provides her an accessible excuse that conceals fatigue and emotional apathy.
The rehabilitation center treats thirty young women who have suffered emotional crisis. Alice prefers as little communication as possible with the girls and performs only the basic demands of her job. The patients’ volcanic emotional world contrasts the desolation of Alice’s life. Thus, she cannot remain on the sidelines for too long. The confrontations of a dominant patient versus the dependency of another, thrust Alice into a power triangle that goes out of control.
