An artist has a nervous breakdown when her boyfriend leaves her finally. Admitted to a clinic she slowly recovers and panicks when she learns that her insurance won't pay for a stay any longer. Another inmate suggests that she invents another persona to be able to stay on where she feels safe. She decided on a well-known baseball player who's autobiography she had found in the hospital's library. This new found identity allows her to start working as a painter again. She is painting chickens in all variations. Her gallerist is organising a very successful exibition and pushing her again to produce more works. She drifts more and more into her chosen identity and finds finally a way back onto her own feet.
Very strong performance from the whole cast lead by Anderson who proved herself as leading lady.
