VOICE by Sylvia Toy, Festival Cutting 3

VOICE is a comedic, science fiction fantasy art film. Psyche Lyssa Echo Smith has entered therapy to “fix herself” so her estranged husband will come back home. All three characters want the same thing – control of Psyche, who is the Self. This cutting from the 160 minute original feature was made especially for submitting to festivals as a standalone short.
