Wardrobe follows the journey of a young woman AMY. Amy is desperately unhappy and seeks the help of a physiatrist to unlock the door to her tragic past. Through this process of self discovery she is triggered with memories and cryptic messages, flashbacks and poignant moments; the creaking door of her sad tale slowly begins to reveal itself.
