Weird Relationship Problems in the Short Film CECILIA (Directed by Francis Annan)

2011 / 05 / 10

Norman, a young nerd, visits a doctor, because he thinks he has challenges with Cecilia. Norman is looking for professional ways to improve the relationship, however is the doctor really capable to help?
