Albert is an eccentric, ageing painter who doubles as an unconventional, Jung-inspired psychotherapist. When his friend asks him to counsel her grandson Ben, whose boyfriend problems are fuelling an already deep depression, their subsequent therapy sessions reveal as much about Albert as they do about Ben.
