The Bell Jar meets Carrie through a David Lynchian lens in this psychological horror set in a 1950s insane asylum, about a teen girl on the edge of adulthood who, while institutionalized, starts to question the reality she is experiencing.

It’s for her own good...

At seventeen, June Hardie is everything a young woman in 1951 shouldn't be — independent, rebellious, a dreamer. But her parents only care about making June a better young woman. When June resists, her whole world is shattered — suburbia isn’t the only prison for different women...

June’s parents commit her to Burrow Place Asylum, aka the Institution. With its sickening conditions, terrifying staff and brutal “medical treatments,” the Institution preys on June’s darkest secrets and deepest fears. And she’s not alone. The Institution terrorizes the other women locked away within its crumbling walls. Those who dare speak up disappear... or worse. Trapped between a gruesome reality and increasingly sinister hallucinations, June isn’t sure where her nightmares end and real life begins. But she does know one thing: in order to survive, she must destroy the Institution before it finally claims them all.
