Synopsis

Madness: an act of imprudence, unreasoning or foolishness… Up to what point is madness a rebellion against injustice?  Mrs. Bermudez will not bear anymore wrong answers while Dr. Lopez does not venture to ask the appropriate questions.  A labor incident becomes the perfect pretext to find and reveal their deepest fears—those fears that torment them on the bus, at the ATM, on the 785th step of the neighborhood’s step street, or the quotidian matters of the clinic hallways.  None can escape their own reality, none can hide themselves from the gaze of the Brother Superior: encouraging for some, threatening to others.  Patient and doctor exchange roles: in anticipation they submerge in a game of false calm. What will the diagnosis of this mental health evaluation?
