Sun Choke

Synopsis: As she recovers from a recent violent psychotic break, Janie (Hagan) is subjected each day to a bizarre holistic health and wellness regimen designed, and enforced, by her lifelong nanny and caretaker, Irma (Crampton). Janie begins to veer off the road to recovery when she develops an obsession with a young woman, Savannah (Lane), that Janie feels an inexplicable yet profound connection to. The obsession turns increasingly invasive, and wedges all three women into an ever-tightening, and terrifying struggle for control. Will Janie pull herself back from the precipice of insanity? Or will she go over head-first, taking anyone nearby down with her?

Do you know what day it is?


- What month?

What year?

- Yes.

- I want you to

color the flowers in.

50 that none of them look

exactly the same.

The petals can either be...

- I remember.

- Good.

But how can I know for sure?

- Four purple flowers'

Four green flowers.

Blue centers on two

purple flowers.

Two green.

Purple centers on two purple,

two green.

- Purple and green what?

- Flowers.

Green Eaves on four...

The four flowers with

purple centers.

Blue leaves on the other four.

- That's good.

Now can you show me'

- I know these tests

were made for children.

- That doesn't mean

they're not useful.

I know this all

seems easy to you now,

but it hasn't always been'

And it may not always be'

And that doesn't

mean you don't have

to show me.

Tell me what you see'

- The water.

- Where is the water?

- The ocean.

- Are you standing on a beach?

- Yes.

- Is the sand warm?

- Yes.

- How about the water?

- I don't know.

- Go to the water.

- I can't.

- Why not?

- There's broken

glass in the sand.

- I want you to use

the sand to cover

up the glass,

and make yourself a

path to the ocean.

When your feet touch the water,

you will raise your right hand.


I think you need to

clear your mind.

- I'm sorry'


I stopped'

- Focus on your body

and your breath.

Focus on your balance'

Know that if you stay focused,

you won't fall'

If you fall,

we start all over again.


You look dehydrated'

- Thank you'

- That's good.

It's easy to forget

how much water

our body needs'

Just a little more now.

- Thank you'

- Your father called

this morning.

He didn't want me to wake you.

- What he say?

- Well, there's good news

and bad news.

- Okay.

- The bad news is, he may have to

stay in Tokyo a few months more.


- And...

I told him how well

you've been doing.

And he wonders if

maybe you're ready to

start spending some

time out of the house.

- Really?

- Only if you feel ready'

- I do.

- Good.

It's good to see you smile.

- How long do I get to go for?

- Lets start with a few hours.

- What should I do?

- Anything you want.

This time, is your time.

Are you sure you're ready?

Who do you see?

- I see me.

- Are you all right?


Step back, this way.

You should be more careful.

There are a lot of ways

this world can hurt you.

- One hour and

seventeen minutes late.

- I know.

I'm sorry'

I lost track'

- I didn't call to remind you,

because I'd like to

treat you as an adult.

But keep an eye on the time.

And call me if

you're going to be late.

- Okay.

- Now...

tell me about your day'

- I don't hear anything.

- Maybe it stopped'

- Well, it's a big house.

Water runs even when

you're not using it.

- It's never happened before'

- I'm sure it has.

You just never noticed.

- How am I suppose to sleep?

- Well, it's

stopped now, hasn't it?

- But what if it starts again?

- Hello?

Are you okay?

Are you okay?

- This is embarrassing.

I'm picking up a friend

to go to the airport and...

I got here early.

- Oh, okay'

- I must've fallen asleep'

- I was just checking.

- Yup.

No worries.

- Have we met before?

- I don't think so.

- You just look really familiar.

That's me.

I'm Savannah by the way'

- Margo.

- You're just in time.

- I can explain'

- I know.

- I would've called but,

my phone ran out of batteries.

- It's not a punishment'

The rules were put

in place for your

protection, little girl.

Everything we do,

we do for you to get better.

- I know, but...

- And you'll feel

so much better after.

All the way down'
