    Le Bal des Folles tells the story of a young, radiant and passionate woman, Eugénie, living during the close of the 19th century.

The hospital is a neurology clinic in Paris run by the famous professor and pioneer of neurology Dr.Charcot, where women diagnosed with hysteria, “craziness”, egomania, epilepsy and other types of mental or physical diseases are committed.
