1950s America: Young Andy joins Dr. Wallace Fiennes, a proponent of the controversial lobotomy procedure, as a photographer on his asylum tour. Since his mother was confined to an institution, Andy has lived in the shadow of his strict father. To gain some freedom, Andy accompanies the family acquaintance Dr. Wallace Fiennes as a photographer. When the two reach a Californian mountain village - a growing center of the New Age movement - they encounter a bizarre French healer who strangely requests the procedure for his own daughter Susan.
