Alma’s first affair, Mahler’s last symphony,

and Sigmund Freud’s interrupted vacation...

"During the late summer of 1910, a distraught Gustav Mahler journeyed to Holland to spend a single afternoon with a vacationing Sigmund Freud, and their one-time encounter serves as the departure point for this eccentric and expressionistic reverie on love, loss, and the birth of modern marriage."
