Based very loosely on the intricate novel by Joanne Greenberg. A young woman's devotion to a childhood fantasy kingdom has taken over her entire life and causes her endless pain and degradation. Placed in a mental hospital, she has the great good fortune to have a truly caring therapist who tries to help her accept reality, even though reality isn't so great either. Written by

Check out Dennis Quaid as the baseball pitcher, and Ron Howard's little brother as the catcher. Also credits at the end of the movie for "The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo" with Dan Elfman. This is the earliest public mention of that entity that I know of...This is Danny Elfman of course from Oingo Boingo(Dead Man's Party/I like little girls), who now does movie soundtracks such as Batman, TV shows "The Simpsons", and "Tales from the Crypt". He is also Jenna Elfman's(Dharma and Greg) uncle. Have fun with all the degrees of separation here.
