Storyboard Description

In this scene, Tessa is going to speak with Dr. Lorbeer. This scene is set in the past but in the film is placed after Justin first discovers what Tessa was really doing. It is a very confusing scene that doesn't have many answers for Tessa or the viewer. The viewer gets the sense that Lorbeer does not understand the extent of his actions, or at least will not admit to them at this point.
