There is something special about this young man. He has walked this earth before; he has traveled through his dreams. His dreams cause concern.but strangely, they speak the truth.
Roman Phoenix has the ability to see what many cannot. In his dreams, he travels into the truth-a truth that cannot be detected by the human eye. One autumn night no different from any other, he completes his nightly ritual and falls asleep. When he wakes, the dreams leave him troubled once again. He recites the demonic tales to the only person who is actually interested: an old friend of the family. But what makes this man so interested in the young boy's dreams? Although these dreams are significantly different, through Roman's eyes, a connection is made.
Mental House: The Roman Opening captures the essence of Roman, a child having to balance two dimensions: his world, living with a mental health disability, and the treacherous spiritual world. I can't wait to see it on the big screen!
