In Hypochondriac, Will is a young Hispanic artist with a loving boyfriend and a good life, but when his mentally ill mother re-emerges after a 10 year absence, it erodes the foundation of the world he has created and exposes a dark past of violence he was desperate to keep hidden. Afraid of becoming like his mom, Will spirals into obsession, despair and madness, tormented by a manifestation of his childhood trauma.
