The past and present collide in the forms of Eleanor and Emily, two women living a century apart who both haunt the same corner room at the Elgin Institute of Mental Health. They are each other’s only solace in a story that explores the nature of the female experience and how it has changed over the course of a hundred years, and how it has not.
