In 1904 a Russian woman named Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) arrives at Carl Jung’s (Michael Fassbender) clinic, seeking treatment for hysteria. Jung is eager to test Sigmund Freud’s (Viggo Mortensen) theories on Sabina and, in fact, successfully treats her. Two years later Jung and Sabina meet Freud in person, and Jung takes over the treatment of Otto Gross, whose influence leads Jung to begin an affair with Sabina, contributing to a rift with Freud.
Based on the true story of Jung, Freud and the patient who came between them.
