In an isolated Roman villa, widowed English dancer Barbara Michaels serves as paid companion and tutor to twenty year-old Catherine, whose rich American mother thinks her ‘mad.’ In Barbara’s eyes it’s simply the case that Catherine is not ‘all there’, and dwells too much in the dysfunctional part of her own head.
