Plot & Details
A woman worn down by life's battles is institutionalized following a nervous breakdown and finds love under the strangest circumstances imaginable in director Ellie Kanner's humorous romantic drama. Letty Mayer is a beautiful young teacher whose boyfriend is a successful attorney and whose family has always been decidedly close knit. Despite the perfection of surface appearances, however, all is not well in Letty's turbulent mind. Letty's sister is about to get married and the pressure of the impending nuptials has the single sibling more than a bit overwhelmed. After suffering a nervous breakdown, Letty is institutionalized. There, surrounded by the white walls and well-intending doctors, Letty strikes up a warm relationship with charming schizophrenic Michael - who is no stranger to institutionalized life. As love begins to blossom between this deeply disturbed pair, Letty will soon be faced with the difficult decision of choosing between returning to the life she has always known, or starting anew with Michael and braving a decidedly uncertain future.
