Cornerstone

The patient Freud never wants you to hear about.
Based on true events, Cornerstone revises the origin story of psychoanalysis from the perspective of a silenced victim, Emma Eckstein. Plagued by debilitating pain, Emma rejects the doubts of her strident activist sister and seeks healing first from Freud and then from his surgeon friend Wilhelm Fliess with disastrous results.
