Plot Summary

Plot Keywords
Taglines READ THIS: She's a young woman. Her parents love her and they care how she looks. And when they criticize her, it's for her own good. They can't understand the way she behaves, why she hurts them sometimes. Each day she finds it a little harder to go to work. One day she is found on a subway platform and doesn't know why she's there or where she is going. And when the police bring her home, her parents are embarrassed and they apologize to the policemen. And then 'Wednesday's Child' begins. The need for the truth is a basic human need that our society denies. This film satisfies that need. - Dr. R.D. Laing See more »
