Dick and Nicole fell in love in a European mental clinic. There’s only one problem: Dick is Nicole’s psychiatrist. The two eventually marry, and we watch their marriage—and their psyches—crumble. Perhaps Dick and Nicole can never be content, but maybe the eventual triumph of their marriage hinges on their shared dramas and miseries?
