Dr. Constance Petersen is a psychiatrist with a firm understanding of human nature - or so she thinks. That is until the mysterious Dr. Anthony Edwardes becomes the new chief of staff at the Green Manors Mental Asylum. The bookish and detached Constance plummets into a whirlwind of tangled identities and feverish psychoanalysis, where the greatest risk is to fall in love.
