Description:
  Based on true events. A desperate mother hires a company to kidnap her troubled son and take him to a locked-down psychiatric hospital where he is subjected to secret abuses of the corrupt institution.

Once a promising young scholar, Andrew finds himself on a drug-addled path to self-destruction. Resentful of his mother for her own drug addiction, Andrew withdraws only further at a time when they need each other most. His mother’s last resort is to hire a company that kidnaps troubled teens and places them in a locked-down and corrupt psychiatric hospital. After being subjected to the secret physical and emotional abuses of the program, Andrew learns the only thing that will help him come to terms with the loss of his father is Andrew himself.
