To lose control, life is precious and they have no idea


Short Synopsis: After nearly ten years of military service including operations in several war zones, a former elite soldier struggles to deal with P.T.S.D. after leaving the armed forces. He decides to find a cure and explores a controversial treatment of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing before he loses control completely.

Medium Synopsis: For the sake of his family and after a violent incident with two burglars at his own home, Chris Draper, a former elite soldier decides to seek professional help for his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. After two years of leaving the military, he begins to be haunted by an image of an Afghan Policeman who he worked with on his tour of duty and who was shot through the head by an enemy sniper. Chris doesn’t understand the reasons for seeing this face, which is breaking him down mentally and causing him to alienate himself from everybody around him. Chris meets Susan Williams, a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist during his private therapy treatments. It’s only through the Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing method that the real explanations for the flashbacks are made clear.
