The 18-minute short is about a woman who claims she is being visited at night by a masked figure she believes is a former lover. Doctors debate whether to further medicate her or do more psychological tests.

Cantrell was still a student at BCTC when the film was made at Cardinal Hill Hospital and Homeplace Guest House. She completed the film studies program at BCTC last semester.

Cantrell said she plans to enter the film in more contests, and in the long run, she hopes to own a film production company.
