Patient Z

Gone Girl meets Nurse Ratched in this tense psychological thriller. 


Therapist Hannah Weiss takes a new job at a prestigious mental institution. Among her patients, one seems atypical. Patient Z, supposedly violent and deranged, seems quite lucid, even charming. The hospital director also shows a great deal of interest in the patient--to the point of obsession.


Hannah finds the director pushing her toward Z, a job she hardly finds a chore, but the mysteries of this place and the relationship between these two gnaw at her. The director is systematically attempting to shatter what is left of Z's sanity. But why?

Trapped in the middle of this power-play, Hannah must either save herself or risk everything she has worked for to uncover the truth.
