Summary
Jean Dobbie-Cunningham is a victim of obsessive behavior; she suffers from a touch obsession that dominates life for her and her family. The touch obsession is one of many symptoms of OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), a common condition that can have serious consequences. Some victims of OCD have such time-consuming compulsions that it is difficult for them to hold a job or manage their families. Common compulsions are the continuous washing of hands or the checking and rechecking of ordinary actions like locking front doors. Some victims learn to control their compulsions, while others require professional attention. This film traces Jean's treatment at a psychiatric hospital and reports on its success two years later
