After the mysterious death of Dr. Pokorny, Dr. Novak, relatively unknown by many, takes over the illustrious psychotherapy practice. At the same time he inherits Mrs.Ruzicka, the secretary of the deceased psychologist. In the hands of Dr.Novak, the practice is less then flourishing.
One morning, Dr.Novak receives a box of audio tapes – Recorded psychotherapy sessions to be exact – and he is asked to listen to them and give his insightful analysis of its content.
Sadly, things take a turn for the worst for Dr.Novak. His troubled mind seems to be getting the best of him...Or does it?
You decide. You are this psychotherapist. You are Dr.Novak...And your task is to carefully analyze and give your insight on the recorded therapy sessions.
Ultimately, your answers will determine your own fate, Dr. Novak.
