1860: Threatened by her intellect and outspokenness, Elizabeth Packard’s husband has her committed to an insane asylum. The horrific conditions inside are overseen by Dr. McFarland, a man even more dangerous to Elizabeth than her traitorous husband. Elizabeth is not the only sane woman confined to the institution and disenfranchised both by gender and the stigma of their supposed madness, they cannot fight for themselves. The merit of losing everything is that you then have nothing to lose.
