It is 1938, the twilight of colonial India, as Gandhi's protests begin to change Indian society. But for some women, things may never change. As widows, they are condemned by Hindu law to spend the rest of their lives in an ashram, to live out their lives in poverty, chastity, and humble obscurity. Then Chuyia, a bewildered 8-year-old who doesn't even remember being married, arrives and upsets everything. Madhumati, the head of the house; Shakuntala, an assistant to a local holy man; and quiet, gorgeous Kalyani are all moved--in very different ways--by her arrival. For these women, the question remains: how far--and for how long--can this cruel injustice be continued in the name of tradition?

Braccati implacabilmente dalle forze dell'ordine e dal reciproco passato, compieranno il loro destino nei corridoi del manicomio, sotto le cure interessate del direttore Peter Cleave. L'amore del dottore per Stella comprometterà i fragili equilibri, condannando gli amanti all'oblio. (Mymovies)

Asylum takes place in England, during the high-Freudian days of the 1950s, when psychiatry had started to flex its muscles. Hugh Bonneville is a professional success, but his wife Stella has already exhausted the era's possibilities--she adores her 10-year-old son, but her marriage has long since faded into endless days, gray evenings sipping scotch by the fire, and badly concealed contempt. Hugh has been hired by a sprawling high-security psychiatric hospital as grim as a tomb. Then Stella meets the patient assigned to renovate the greenhouse, Edgar Stark, a sculptor institutionalized for murdering his wife in a jealous pique. Their gazes lock, they immerse themselves in a passionate clandestine affair and inevitably, catastrophe follows
