Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Jung (Golden Globe® nominee Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Academy Award® nominee Keira Knightley) as his patient. Jung's weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud (Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen). Both men fall under Sabina's spell. Into the mix comes Otto Gross (Cesar Award winner Vincent Cassel), a debauched patient who is determined to push the boundaries.
Jung gives in to lust and a passionate affair begins. Sabina becomes the catalyst for Jung's inspired theories. Meanwhile Freud goes further, delving into Sabina's brilliant mind until she can take the situation no longer. The bonds between the trio shatter. Driven by desire and revenge, with their reputations at stake, Freud and Jung embark on a battle of wills. In this dangerous game of sex and intellect, the price will be Sabina's soul.
