Top scientist, Dr Beth Anderson, breaks into a high security facility in the dead of night; risking everything rather than admit she has OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). Overwhelmed by a fear of causing harm to others, she is compelled to steal an out-of-date sandwich to save a pregnant colleague from eating it. But just as Beth’s about to lose everything, she finds connection and understanding from an unlikely source.
DO NO HARM is a tense, amusing yet ultimately hopeful OCD heist movie about the absurdity and pain caused by living with the monster of OCD.
