Anna (Ghistlaine D'Orsay) is a teenage girl beset with mental problems. Her parents have shuffled her in-and-out of various institutions with little improvement on her condition. Blanche (Margarita Lozano) is the dedicated Swiss psychiatrist who successfully delves into Anna's past and accurately identifies her malady as schizophrenia. Flashbacks reveal her childhood experiences which become clues to the nature of her illness. Anna's parent's are portrayed as wealthy and too busy to really concern themselves with their daughter's problems. The story is taken from the Andree Sechehaye diary concerning her own battles with the illness.
