Felix Charin, co-author for the series 4 Blocks, worked for six months in a youth detention center in Berlin to research his feature film debut THERAPIE. In this gripping psychothriller, the boundaries between normality and illness blur.
Alia (Taneshia Abt) is released from prison after five years of juvenile detention. However, she must undergo a court-prescribed therapy with the renowned psychologist Dr. Steinach (Dominic Raacke). As part of this unconventional treatment, all sessions are recorded on video and Alia has to film her everyday life. But Dr. Steinach not only appears to have good intentions for his patient.
