“Verso’s gothic movie creeps in all the right directions." - Ali Gardner, Front Row Reviews

"a moving, enrapturing short.” - David William Upton, So So Gay

In 1995, Jonah is proud to be the loner at the teen mental health clinic. But when a new patient, Richard, is admitted and the boys are forced to share a room, Jonah finds himself forming a connection despite himself. But will their bond be strong enough to protect them from the darklings that hide in the night shadows?
