Doctor Sigmund Freud was an idol in the eyes of Salvador Dali. Dali ardently wanted to meet Freud, assuming that the famous doctor would help him understand himself, identify the origins of his genius and give a scientific explanation to the mysterious dreams and visions which Dali transferred onto canvas, creating his surrealistic masterpieces.  

Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams was Dali’s most favorite handbook… And once, Dali finds himself in a sanitarium, where Doctor Freud holds his famous sessions. There, Dali is not only given an opportunity to attend the sessions with patients, suffering from various psychiatric disorders, but also to discuss his dreams, creative work and fears with the famous psychoanalyst. 

Against his will, Dali becomes a “test subject” himself, and during the private session, Freud ruthlessly digs into Dali’s unconscious. Thus, Salvador Dali’s carefully created image of a genius-paranoiac falls apart… Freud uncovers the root causes of Dali’s narcissism, hysteroid behavior and obsessive ideas of his own grandeur.

Freud’s assistant Adolf Assange gladly helps Freud to immerse the “arrogant Spaniard” into a theatrical performance, where the patients and the medical staff are the actors. The renowned visitor, Dali, becomes involved in the show, during which he is born, becomes a genius, dies as a poor lunatic and is resurrected as the great surrealist.
