|| 1895 Vienna. Minna Bernays finds herself out on the street and out of options. She turns to her sister, Martha, for help. Martha has her own problems-- six young children and an absent, disinterested husband who happens to be Sigmund Freud. While Martha is shocked and repulsed by her husband's "pornographic" work, Minna is fascinated. She and Freud embark on what is at first simply an intellectual courtship... yet something deeper is brewing beneath the surface, something Minna cannot escape.
