The early '70s saw a wave of documentaries dealing with the use of group therapy and nudity. This film is said to be among the better ones. It takes a mixed collection of adults through a marathon nude group therapy/encounter session which takes place at the home of the two psychiatrists who are the group leaders. As barriers begin to fall, participants relate their grievances and difficulties with spouses and others.
