A psychodrama based on a true story. A young autistic girl has a strange phobia about numbers. Some numbers make her happy while others make her sad or even frighten her. The psychologist struggles to discover the connection between the numbers and her reaction to them. It turns out that earlier in her childhood she had a collection of Three Stooges flash cards depicting various situations that the comic trio experienced in their movies. Each card was numbered and the picture showed events ranging from pleasant and fun to sad and hurtful. The girl associated these numbers with the feelings and events depicted in the cards. The result was that her only means of communicating her feelings was to either say or respond to the numbers and the emotions they represented.
A fascinating story that explores the dark recesses of the human mind.
