A merciless conflict between a famous psychoanalyst and her daughter
Three psychoanalysts together. The mother, Mélanie Klein - who ´s famous -, her daughter, Melitta Schmideberg, and Paula Heymann, one of Mme Klein's disciples. The tragedy: Mélanie's son is dead in an accident and the daughter writes a letter to the mother putting on her the responsibility of the brother's death that she reads as a suicide. From then on, the three women exchange psychoanalytic interpretations that hide ways of setting some inexpiable accounts. At the end, this process will pull the daughter away from the mother and the disciple will replace her.
