Film (short) by Cedric Hill (Thriller) Cinematographer Dongmei is a Chinese woman who ends up in the psych ward after fending off a couple of thugs and then inexplicably attacking the responding police officers. The script is a 22-minute, intense, psychological thriller written to keep audiences guessing throughout. It's an extreme battle of wits between an intelligent, somewhat wise-ass, medicated and unwilling patient who's adept at turning a conversation and a psychiatrist who's overly confident he has what it takes to connect with her. The doctor's confidence starts to falter, however, as the session intensifies and his combative patient takes charge, interspersing vividly descriptive and surprising accounts of her past with perfectly timed personal attacks on her new sparring partner. Even after the doctor seemingly regains control of the session, forcing Dongmei to face some hazy and painful images, it's not unreasonable to expect the tables to be turned again to achieve an unexpected and powerful ending that will leave audiences ...
