"The film deals with the actual treatment by a general practitioner of a young married woman with severe physical complaints. Under treatment by other general practitioners and specialists for two years and getting worse, she was fortunate enough to be seen by a doctor who recognized the emotional elements of her illness. She became well in the period covered by the film - eight weeks. The patient and the general practitioner were filmed each week, as well as a seminar involving three internists, a surgeon, two psychiatrists and the general practitioner, each exploring together the case under treatment and the general area of emotions and illness."
