Child psychiatrist Anya Molokova has been called in to observe and evaluate the case of a ten-year-old boy who has been injuring himself and others in the aftermath of his mother's failed suicide attempt. On the surface, Alex's claim that his imaginary friend Ruen eggs him into violence doesn't seem that extraordinary to Dr. Molokova; in fact, it is not much different from some of the symptoms of her own daughter, who suffers from early-onset schizophrenia. But what begins as a somewhat routine, if horrifying case becomes something far more serious when the mental health professional realizes that a terrifying reality might be all too close at hand.
