abstract
A dramatization of the story of the experiments undertaken at the Allen Institute in Montreal, funded by the CIA. Patients hospitalized with mental problems were given experimental treatments that included electroshock therapy, halluginogenic drugs and forms of brainwashing. Efforts on behalf of patients, years afterwards, to gain some compensation from the CIA involve legal manoevering that both the American and Canadian governments attempt to block.
