    The documentary tells the moving story of the ruined live of Manja Croiset (1946) and her lifelong walk through psychiatry. Manja is a 2nd generation survivor and is from her 16th in therapy. Her Jewish mother lost all her family in the Holocaust. Manja's problem is not understood. She became a chronically ill psychiatric patient, spent many years in psychiatric hospitals, was 'drugged', got electroschocks, LSD. A lifelong with medication, and constantly living with fears and nightmares. What went wrong at such a young age? Was she ever asked for a cause, did she ever had an adequate treatment?
