Movie Info

Linda Bishop was a loving mother, a well-educated and happy woman. Then her body was found in an abandoned New Hampshire farmhouse, marked by cold and starvation. What was once Linda Bishop had quickly become a mystery, accompanied by her diary that documents a journey of starvation and the loss of sanity. For nearly four months, Bishop, a prisoner of her own mind, survived on apples and rainwater during one of the coldest winters on record. Waiting for God to save her. As her story unfolds from different perspectives, including her own, we learn the heartbreaking reality about a systemic failure to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

  • They're using the pacing and the lachrymose visuals to get us inside Linda's head, giving us a sense of how she saw the world as it closed in on her: the loneliness, the ever-slowing pace of a life ebbing.

  • The film gradually thaws out the stark, frozen mystery at its heart, but the warm-blooded, breathing truth of Linda's life is no less tragic than that of her cold death.

  • This documentary, coupled with Ms. Aviv's article, addresses unresolved issues of personal autonomy versus a patient's inability to protect herself. It will haunt you.
