Arden’s violent and powerful adaptation of her work with The Holocaust women’s theatre troupe looks into the mind of a woman labelled schizophrenic – and finds not madness, but tortured sexual guilt created by the taboos of society. 

‘I don’t know of anyone in cinema who has penetrated the psyche to the extent she has, or evolved visual language of such richness and strength to convey what she has to say.’ – Molly Plowright, Glasgow Herald
