Single Reflex

A possibly insane girl attempts to escape the clutches of a concerned friend who always seems to know how to convince her to stay.

SYLVIE, a moody teenage girl has a single reflex, to run away from MIKE who wants nothing but to persuade her to stay with him. Sylvie is brainwashed by the idea that Mike is a fantasy person she has invented in her own mind. No matter how she tries Mike consistently is able to find Sylvie and influence her to stay. Using her single lens reflex camera Sylvie attempts to prove to Mike he isn’t a real person. After finally developing the photos Sylvie’s hypothesis is correct, Mike disappears, leaving Sylvie free to go back to the hospital and receive treatment for her mental disabilities.
