James Jackson (Risley) is a late twenties worker drone in NYC who's just become engaged to Kim (Shelly) when his behavior undergoes a radical transformation. He's getting subliminal messages via commercials for a perfume called Revolution #9--the kind of messages that lead to worldwide conspiracy theories. His mental breakdown is diagnosed as schizophrenia with Kim bearing the brunt of James's paranoia and self-destructive behavior while she also tries to deal with the bureaucracy and inadequacies of the mental health system. Risley forgoes the histrionics often associated with playing a mentally ill character while Shelly displays the toughness of an ordinary woman confronted by a difficult situation.
