Anne, Hanna, Anny: tre ragazze, tre spiriti liberi che si scontrano con le chiusure dell'epoca in cui vivono.

Hanna, nella Vienna d'inizio Novecento, è una giovane aristocratica alla ricerca di se stessa, insoddisfatta delle convenzioni borghesi. Dopo molta infelicità riuscirà a individuare nella psicoanalisi, nuova strabiliante cura appena inventata dal dottor Freud, il modo in step with raggiungere le radici del suo malessere. Anny è una celebrity di Hollywood dei nostri tempi, drogata di celebrità e di sostanze stupefacenti, che cerca con l'abbrutimento di dare un senso a una vita in cui l'unico valore è il denaro; ci riuscirà invece attraverso l. a. recitazione, e nel suo travagliato percorso esistenziale troverà l'amore. Tre donne che esprimono los angeles loro sensazione di differenza rispetto al mondo e l. a. volontà di sentirsi libere rifugiandosi in uno spazio di silenzio interiore nel quale svaniscono tutti i limiti e i confini.
