Description Emily Taylor, despite being reunited with her husband from prison, becomes severely depressed with emotional episodes and suicide attempts. Her psychiatrist, Jonathan Banks, after conferring with her previous doctor, eventually prescribes an experimental new medication called Ablixa. The plot thickens when the side effects of the drug lead to Emily killing her husband in a "sleepwalking" state. With Emily plea-bargained into mental hospital confinement and Dr. Banks' practice crumbling around him, the case seems closed. However, Dr. Banks cannot accept full responsibility and investigates to clear his name. What follows is a dark quest that threatens to tear what's left of his life apart even as he discovers the diabolical truth of this tragedy.

    Whoever edited this trailer is a genius! The way it kept Channing in with the intense scenes cleverly hiding the truth! I know its just a trailer but I can always appreciate when they dont give anything away.

    I have studied and researched many types of Drugs being Cannabis is the safest. Unless you suffer with psychosis otherwise Cannabis is very safe. Cannabis should be decriminalised. The End.

    Lol at all these people saying the trailer misleads you about the movie. Sorry, trailers are not supposed to give away what happens in the movie.

    This is based on facts and factual events. Mental drugs can have extreme side effects. Look up Prozac. Drugs which affect any part of the brain functions should NEVER be approved, humans barely scratched the surface of 0.1% of the secrets of the brain.

    Its rediculous how accurate this movie is with Americans and phsyciatrists prescribing drugs that have severe and harmeful side effects and can be addicting when pot would probably fix this ladys issues.  It should be criminal how the pharmacudical industry works
