BEST IN SHOW – “Twine Sleep”
A mother, desperate to revive her son from his coma, hires a doctor who comes with a very peculiar method. This doctor, while socially awkward, seems a bit intrusive, leaving the mother to be a bit leery about her decision. Using a machine, the doctor enters into the coma to uncover the cause, and is met with his fair share of zany mishaps. The doctor discovers that the boy is in a loop, living out the last bit of his conscious existence in the coma. What seems to be an in and out operation, turns into a quirky yet thrilling quest for the doctor and the boy to make their escape from the ever-looping unconsciousness.
