Experiencing Interruptions?

Inner Secret

Sometimes love moves us to cross dangerous lines. Hau, a psychiatric nurse at a mental institution, knows she should keep her head down after a tragic accident takes the life of a patient. That would be easier, however, if Hau's growing friendship with simple but sweet patient Drew didn't make her fiercely protective of him. Feeling the pressure of the demands of her job, increasing hostility from her coworkers and the guilt that comes with losing a patient, Hau works herself to exhaustion, nearly missing the threat to Drew's life. Will Hau snap out of her funk in time to save the most precious patient in her care?
