Cindy is allowed to leave the Women’s Mental Ostopital to spend the weekend with her husband Alex.
Back home, it seems that her state hasn’t improved.
She still sees men spying on her everywhere in the kitchen. Men with cameras ! There’s even one in the freezer!
Alex is upset: six months of priceless electroconvulsive therapy, exquisite drugs, perfect icy baths, admirable padded cells for nothing!
Wait, wait...is there really no-body in this bloody fridge?!
And who’s the nutsiest here ? The woman who comes from the Mental Ostopital ? Or the man who send her there ?
(well, maybe is the Director ; one will not be surprised if he was institutionalized after the screening...)
