Where is the human soul? Is it in the heart? In the brain?

This is the story of a psychiatric hospital which seems a dreadful place without any humanity. Getting to know closer the patients, the staff, the doctor, we get into this new inner world. Little by little we start to see them not like mental disorder patients, but people that give universal messages about freedom and humanity.

This is the big value of this documentary, directed with brilliant camera, sound and music and characters that we will remember.
