Dr. Powell (Jeff Bridges) traces prot’s (Kevin Spacey’s) story to New Mexico. He rushes there to beat the deadline and finds that the Prot’s story is about a man named Porter who disappeared (presumed drowned) after avenging the murder of his family. A photograph reveals that Porter is Prot. Powell returns to the hospital but misses the key moments where Prot “disappears” and Porter becomes catatonic, leaving the true story open to interpretation. Powell reconciles with his son. All of the patients are cured except Bess (Melanee Murray), who has disappeared.
