In 1923 the writer Katherine Mansfield went to the guru Gurdjieff in Fontainebleau in the hope that he might ‘cure her soul’. In the 1980s in Sydney, a young man awakes in hospital to find a world dominated by women. This daring re-examination of the female artist challenges the threshold of sexual politics.
