We Have Apples is set in a psychiatric facility. Jane, a quirky, 18-year-old writer, is determined to overcome her depression, which is personified by a female actor. Annoyed by the often cheesy and condescending group therapy sessions, Jane and a band of fabulous fellow patients start a writing group. As their voices grow stronger, tension between patients and staff members heightens. More complications ensue when Jane and her psychiatrist’s son (who is pretending to be an outpatient with symptoms strikingly similar to a Prozac commercial) fall in love and tragedy strikes their community.
