A SHORT FILM BY DANNY RHODES
A new mother suffering from postpartum OCD is plagued by intrusive thoughts and vivid images of harming her baby. Ashamed at herself for even thinking these thoughts and afraid her baby will be taken from her, she tells no one. But it's okay because she'd never actually hurt her baby, or would she?
