Description

In the early 1960s, a doctor at a mental ward sheds his ethical restraints in an effort to pioneer a new form of "mental cleansing" at the behest of a private research group. The Control Group is a chilling, 10-part historical fiction for mature audiences. Listener discretion is advised due to realistic depictions of violence and graphic sexuality. Binge the entire season now with headphones for a fully immersive experience.
