Synopsis

Set in the days leading up to World War I, this dark truth-based story explores the dynamics of the intense relationship between iconic psychiatrist Sigmund Freud, his student Carl Jung, and the troubled but beautiful young woman that comes between them. Their story, paired with a debauched patient determined to push the boundaries, played a pivotal role in the birth of psychoanalysis and virtually defined the practice of psychiatry as we know it today.
