I think a time in the country will do me good
***SPOILERS*** After her fiancée Paul Bernard was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound psychiatrist Celeste Dupont, Andera Roth, had a severe nervous breakdown. It's in Celeste being accepted in a top position at the Millburn Institute in the wilds of New Jersey is what seemed to be just the right medicine for her recovery.
As soon as Celeste entered Millburn she noticed that things were a bit odd in the people who run it starting with it's director Dr. Quilley, Peter MacNeill. Everyone seems as if their either on drugs or lobotomized! In trying to figure out what exactly is going on in Millburn Celeste is shocked to find out from the places's personnel director Mrs. Donneymeade, Linda-Repo Martell, that she's not a doctor but in fact a patient there!
At first thinking that she's being treated for her depression, in her guilt-feelings about Paul's death, Celeste later finds out that she's in fact perfectly all right! It's those running the place like Dr. Quilley and her personal psychiatrist Desmond Busby, Richard Burgi, who are the one's who need to be treated but the shocking thing about all that is that they the lunatics are the one's running the asylum!
Once you realize what's going on at the Millburn Institute there's nothing really left to surprise you. Celeste by uncovering the scam by Dr.Quilley, who's really escaped mental patient and homicidal psycho Rupert Preston, as well as his top kick or aid Desmond Busby are pulling she's now in danger of being murdered by them in order to keep their crazy secret secret. It's never really explained what exactly Quilley, or Preston, and Busby were trying to pull off in them taking control of the Millburn Institute but no explanation was really necessary. They were both as mad as a mad hatter and their bizarre actions fit the bill, or hat size, in the crazy and murderous things that they did!****SPOILER ALERT**** Which included in crazy Desmond turning on his partner in crime Quilley, or Preston, for no explainable or rational reason when in one of his rare lucid moments Quilley made some sense in what to do to keep the entire scam form getting out of hand.
As for Celeste she escapes being murdered by a deranged and committable Desmond by one of the few patients in Millburn Evan Franklin,Paul Fauteux, who still had some of his marbles left in him coming, from what seemed like out of nowhere, to her rescue. But we didn't get to see what turned out to be the hero of the film-Evan Franklin-until the movie was almost over!
