Psychologist Sybil wants to focus on writing again, but instead she gets more and more involved with the case of a young patient who reminds her of a past relationship of hers.


Virginia Efira has already played a working mother on the verge of a nervous breakdown in Justine Triet‘s VICTORIA. In Triet‘s newest film, SYBIL, she appears to be well-adjusted at first. Psychologist Sybil decides to get rid of her patients and focus on her writing, but when her phone doesn‘t stop ringing, she answers it. Margot (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is on the other end, a young actress who is pregnant from an affair and doesn‘t know what to do. The case triggers something in SYBIL and she goes deeper and deeper with Margot, while her own fantasies increasingly involve flashbacks to a past, wild relationship. Treit portrays Sybil‘s falling apart in an abrupt montage. The more this bizarre carousel turns, the more Sybil loses control, which she might have never had in the first place.
