Norah's son Christopher is clearly suffering from a severe mental problem, doing and saying all kinds of weird things. But Norah's husband is a psychiatrist who won't admit there could possibly be anything wrong with Christopher. Norah leaves home in despair and finds some new friends; but then, things turn really ugly.
