The intensity of a young woman's feelings for her mentally ill sister provide the theme that is weighed in the balance in this compelling but downbeat drama. Agueliki's sister has been seriously disturbed for some time before the family decides to have her committed. Agueliki fights to have her sister put in a private clinic -- where the care is more personal -- but the family wins out in getting her into the forbidding state mental hospital. Unable to bear the thought of her sister's treatment in that institution, Agueliki manages to get her released into her own care, in her home -- even though it may create a schism between herself and her family.
