How paranoid can you be?

Our brain is wired in a weird way. We are docile as long as we’re not in danger, but ferocious when we sense something might happen to us. But then there is a filter of logic and insight to almost every action of ours, including reacting to danger. Paranoia is the absence of that filter.

This Malayali short film uploaded by Pocket Films – Indian Short Films is a great example of what could be at stake to our paranoid reactions to the most unassuming victims.
