“Tormented” ventures into the terrifying corners of the mind through a young boy whose family seems to be falling apart around him. He manifests a dangerous friendship and reliance on a stuffed rabbit that comes to life. Is he crazy? Is his mother alive or dead? Is their storybook illustrator father going insane or are they all delusional?
