Shock Therapy

While attending couples therapy, Daniel and his girlfriend quickly realize that today isn't going to be a typical session. Throughout the duration of their appointment, a questionable therapist begins to apply his “outside the box” approach to their issues. In what originally appears to be a diatribe against Daniel and his manhood, we start to see that the therapist might just be on his way to achieving a major breakthrough.
