Main character Micha (Amanda Ooms), who is obsessed with Buster Keaton, stays at the sanatorium Nirvana House in Santa Barbara where the actor was once a patient. The residents are eccentric characters that appear to inhabit lives outside of real time. Micha meets Dr. O'Connor (Donald Sutherland), who heads the operation and has a penchant for poisonous snakes. One of the residents is a bitter scotch-drinking ex-actress, Diana (Geraldine Chaplin), who is confined to a wheel chair. Another resident is the former prima donna, Serafina (Valentina Cortese), who nurtures the fantasy of a dramatic love affair. Gradually reality overcomes the fantasy of Nirvana House, which is especially evident in the relationship between Micha and Diana, who develops jealous feelings over Micha's relationship with Dr. O'Connor. Rebecca Horn was fascinated by a celebrity of American silent films Buster Keaton, who she considered a tragic character and not a comedian. She included strait-jacket in several film sequences, with which she refers to Buster Keaton’s personal experience during his stay at the sanatorium, when he was detained in it.
Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween.
