Mind Over Matter

"Mind Over Matter" tells the story of Dr. Bryan Sanderson, a logical and average man who is assigned to care for an elderly cancer patient with dementia, and to his surprise, he discovers that the patient is his abusive adoptive father, David. David has flashbacks that show how he used to treat Bryan when he was a child. Although David does not remember Bryan or his past actions, he continues to make Bryan's life difficult in the present, causing Bryan to lose his composure and reveal his feelings of anger, betrayal, and disappointment to his father. Ultimately, Bryan realizes that fighting is pointless, and he breaks down in tears, releasing all the pent-up emotions he has been carrying for so long.
