Synopsis: Biopic of the life of the great Emily Dickinson, a poet who spent most of her life at her parents’ house in Amherst, Massachusetts.
The mansion in which she lived serves as a backdrop to the portrait of an unconventional woman about whom very little is known. Born in 1803, she was considered a talented child, but emotional trauma forced her to drop out of school. From that moment on, she withdrew from society and began to write poems. Despite her lonely life, her work transports her readers into her exciting world. This is the story of the American poet Emily Dickinson, from her childhood to becoming the famous artist we know.
