The Subjective Mind

A mysterious organization is running a large scale series of tasks in which subjects will receive a "reward" if they complete all of them. In the film, we focus on a task in which a subject must stay in a completely soundproof room as long as possible to test how long the human body can withstand sanity in such a desolate environment. The room is completely bare except for a mattress, a toilet, and a clock. Each subject is aloud only one item to bring with them during the task. The film follows a subject and his struggles to keep his cool in the silent room. The only thing that keeps him going is the thought of moving on to the next task and receiving the "reward" after he completes them all.

One of my favorite things to write about is a seemingly normal person's descent into madness. I wanted to take that idea and turn it into something an audience could view and experience.
