Heidelberg 1894. Using only torn up bedsheets as her material, Marie Lieb makes enigmatic figures, patterns and signs on the floor of her psychiatric cell - and the result is mesmerising. Over a century later, an artist stumbles across photographs of these floor drawings and quickly falls under their spell. She wants to know more about Marie Lieb, but her medical file is missing.
