There can only be one consequence for anyone who plans to watch Side Effects online; a thrilling ride! The film is the story of Emily whose life was turned upside down when her husband Martin was sentenced to four years in prison for engaging in insider trading. But instead of his release being a good thing, Emily slips into depression and becomes suicidal. Her first suicide attempt is crashing her car into a wall.
Emily is forced to attend sessions with a psychiatrist named Jonathan Banks. However the antidepressants Emily is taking do not seem to work. The shrink who previously attended to Emily, Victoria, suggests Ablixa, a new pharmaceutical drug that is currently on trials. Jonathan declines at first but changes his mind when Emily has another suicide attempt. The drug turns out to be effective except for the fact that it induces sleepwalking. In one of her sleepwalking episodes Emily knifes Martin and he dies.
Jonathan is blamed for the incident and is accused of taking on too many clients such that he didnâ€™t pay adequate attention to Emily. His career suffers as a result and now he sets on a mission to rehabilitate himself. While at it, he comes across evidence that suggests Emily was not suffering from depression but was only faking it. Her co-conspirator? Victoria!
After confirming that indeed Emily was faking it and confronting Victoria about it, Victoria turns to blackmail causing Jonathanâ€™s wife to leave him for alleged infidelity. How will Jonathan uncover the truth and get his life back? Find out by watching Side Effects.
