The Ward Trailer


Kristen is a young and beautiful girl who's just been institutionalised in a hospital for the mentally unstable. It's 1960 and she has no idea of why she's become a patient, her memory of life before whatever drove her to be seen as unbalanced totally escapes her and the doctors don't appear to be shedding much light on her situation either.
