The marriage crumbles, and after causing mayhem in the village Katharina is sent to an insane asylum by the village officials. She is held there for years and is subject to hydrotherapy and electro shock therapy, a lobotomy is supposed to make her immune to feelings. When Katharina Walser is finally released from the institution after 15 years, new misfortune finds her. A Swiss film based on a true story.
