Syndrome. Decades later, after claiming the baby was stillborn and charging a nurse
to take her to a shelter for the mentally ill, the doctor learns the girl has in fact grown
into a bright, attractive woman. Her re-emergence in his life serves as a flesh-and-blood
reminder of his deepest darkest secret, and causes a fatal rift among the entire family.
