A riveting and stunning fictionalization of the true story of the unsuccessful mental health treatment of schizophrenic Stanley McCormick, son of the inventor of the McCormick reaper and the story of his wife Katherine Dexter who is banished, along with all women, from being seen by McCormick as he is held in isolation on the family estate in Santa Barbara in the early 20th century.
