Synopsis/Details: 

Heather Lovelace is a long-haired, melancholy schizophrenia patient in the 70s. She loves to read but hates the home. She sees Loula’s ghost as a chance to be free from her mental illness. Loula is the ghost of the woman who lived in the mansion before it was turned into a home for troubled teen girls, and she wants Heather to be free like she was in her life. Dr. Green is Heather’s therapist, who only wants Heather to have as normal a life as possible. Loula begins to poison Heather's mind as she makes her way through the hospital, fighting her illness. We aren't sure if Loula is a part of Heather, a ghost apparition, or both. Loula makes Heather do unspeakable things without recollection, and Heather has to choose to either go with Loula or return to the hospital. All the while, she's fighting the truth that's just underneath the surface of her mind.
