It is the dawn of electricity, and Dr. Givings is using a newfangled machine to induce “paroxysms” in his patients with hysteria. All the while his wife Catherine sits in the next room, watching patients who were previously distraught leave pleasantly satisfied. Her curiosity eventually gets the best of her, and she manages to sneak into her husband’s operating theater. Though she delights in the sensations produced by the machine, she still yearns for something more. As she attempts to revitalize her marriage and discovers her sexuality, Catherine learns that it takes more than a spark for passion to thrive.
