Experimental film exploring the connections between Catholicism and psychoanalysis. A meditation on Bernini's statue of St Teresa in Rome the manner in which the statue is "depicted in a religious, sexual ecstasy which surfaces on the body in a kind of death the body is in a corpse like state. Unseeing, her vision is of a masculine, eroticised figure of Christ". (Nina Danino, London Filmmaker's Co Op Catalogue)
