    Inspired by deposition transcripts from a malpractice case, “Let It Come Down” portrays the relationship between patient and therapist as a seductive love more powerful and volatile than any romance. Rachel is exploring family secrets with her maternal therapist, but when the doctor faces a lawsuit for abruptly terminating treatment, she paints Rachel as violent and an explosive, life-altering battle ensues. This tale of betrayal ignites a dialogue about the dynamics of therapy and the blurry line between obsession and love. Cast of 4. Director: Katherine M. Carter.
