A reclusive American composer with an online following has a tentative romance with a beautiful social worker. This offers a glimmer of hope, but his mind fractures as the voices in his head grow louder and more destructive.
Filmmakers Youssef Delara and Victor Teran double up on directorial duties for this gritty drama set in the underground Dubstep scene, and centering on a socially maladjusted musical savant named Jim who grows obsessed with Wendy, the sympathetic social worker driven by her selfless desire to save him. When Wendy rejects Jim's romantic advances he snaps, prompting her to seek out her mentor Kevin in an attempt to pull her troubled charge back from the brink of a complete psychological collapse.
