Plush Doll A hearty comedy that asks what would happen to your life if you didn’t feel any physical pain. What if your body had its own mind? What if I’ve never fallen asleep? What if you remember everything you felt, thought, and experienced so far? Four medical malfits sign up for a three-day workshop to tackle their problems. Can former male nurses and self-proclaimed “Woo Woo” lead them to healing? Or … probably they aren’t the ones who need the most treatment.
