The Snake Pit plot

"Married and in love... with a man she didn't know or want!"

Virginia Cunningham seems hopelessly psychotic, but thanks to compassionate doctor Mark Kik, she can undergo talk therapy. Flashbacks show that she did not receive love from her mother in her youth and that she lost her father at a very young age. Virginia also believes she is guilty of the death of the man she loved. Thanks to Dr. Kik moves them to the 'best ward', where she is belittled by a tyrannical nurse. After misbehavior, Virginia ends up in the "snake pit" that has a strange therapeutic effect on her.
