Set in 1938 Brooklyn, this gripping psychological mystery begins when attractive, level-headed Sylvia Gellburg suddenly loses her ability to walk. The only clue lies in Sylvia’s obsession with news accounts from Germany. Though safe in Brooklyn, Sylvia is terrified by Nazi violence - or is it something closer to home?
Includes an interview with Dr. David D. Clarke about psychosomatic illnesses.
Recorded before a live audience at the DoubleTree Suites, Santa Monica in June 1996.
