Melanie Klein has just lost her son in what appears to be a climbing accident. His death brings the long-standing conflict with her daughter Melitta to a sharp climax. Professional rivalries mix with visceral family resentments – and taboo-breaking psychoanalytic theories. Caught (or carefully positioned) between the warring mother-daughter pair is Paula – Melitta’s friend and Mrs Klein’s would-be protégée.
