Ever felt your therapist was more messed up than you? What drives needy and unstable characters to become counsellors? In Good Grief, a man with a tragedy-scarred past falls into the clutches of self-absorbed volunteer counsellor Evelyn Barge who hijacks the therapy session to pursue her own psycho-sexual agenda. Both Evelyn and her client undergo radical transformations during the process but the results and revelations are not what anyone expects. Textbook Counselling 101? Imagine the opposite.
