Film synopsis

After the mysterious disappearance of a nurse at a remote private clinic, Kathy (Sharni VinsonStep Up 3D, Bait 3D, You’re Next) takes up the vacant role at ‘Roget Clinic’, a private hospital for the clinically comatose in a remote seaside town.

Kathy is placed under the imperious watch of Matron Cassidy (Academy Award® nominee Rachel GriffithsHilary and Jackie, Six Feet Under, Muriel’s Wedding) and Dr. Sebastian Roget (Charles DanceGame Of Thrones, Gosford Park, Alien 3), a renegade neurologist operating at the fringes of medical society.

Despite her strong sense of foreboding and the dismal working conditions, Kathy is desperate to take up the post and overlooks the eeriness of the ward and the disturbing patients that reside there. She is soon assigned to care for a mysterious coma patient, who is simply known to staff as Patrick.

Before long it becomes apparent that Patrick has telepathic powers and his affections for Kathy turn into a deadly and bloody obsession, letting no one get in his way.
