dealing with the beginnings of psychoanalysis. In the early 1900s, Carl Jung, an up-and-coming doctor at a Swiss clinic, decides to experiment on a young Russian patient, Sabina Spielrein, using Sigmund Freud’s controversial new method. Spielrein arrives at the clinic a deeply disturbed woman, though clearly intelligent and herself interested in pursuing a career as an analyst. Jung’s treatment of Spielrein, and the affair that this leads to, takes place alongside the development of his intense relationship with Freud, who sees Jung very much as his disciple and heir to the throne.
