The action unfolds during a final-year session of a course in group psychotherapy in the space where the course is normally held. The course is led by an American psychiatrist-psychotherapist, and the members of the group are psychiatrists, pedagogues and special education teachers. Simona K. (40), a psychiatrist who is much more successful in her professional life than in her personal life, is at the centre of rather stormy relationships between the group members. However, group therapy is not the theme of this movie. It is just a means by which we reach the real subjects this film deals with.
