Helen Luke, although not an analyst, was a Jungian in the truest sense of the word.

The film, introduced by Thomas Moore, includes interviews with Sir Laurens van der Post and Robert Johnson with whom she shared a practice for many years. There is also footage of the Apple Farm Community that she founded. In the film Helen Luke speaks of her life, describes her unusual meeting with Carl Jung and discusses her analysis with Toni Sussman. Appended to the biography is an interview and tribute to Luke by the eminent director and author, Peter Brook.
