As a patient, a captive in her own inner life, Magdaleena succesfully resists her psychiatrist. The confrontation, filmed in split screen, is less an actual case study than a metaphorical story, based on the filmmaker's personal experience of being looked at as the 'other' because they lives and performs outside the binary gender norm.
