Sibyl is a novelist turned psychoanalyst. Trapped by her desire to write, she decides to leave most of her patients. While looking for inspiration, Margot, a young actress in trouble, begs her to see her. In the middle of filming, she becomes pregnant by the lead actor… who is in a relationship with the film’s director. While she exposes her passionate dilemma, Sibyl, fascinated, secretly records her. Her patient’s words feed her novel and plunge her back into the whirlwind of her past. When Margot begs Sibyl to join her in Stromboli for the end of the filming, everything accelerates at a dizzying pace… Book at this link.
