About this submission
On Christmas Eve, Elena and Athi, two patients committed to a corrupt asylum, plot their great escape to the beach for Christmas.

After suffering a near-death experience, Elena realizes that life can be better than what she has now, and changes her mind. As the two make their preparations to flee, they encounter an unexpected obstacle.
