Young nurse Sister Alma is assigned to care for Elizabeth, noted actress who suddenly ceased speaking onstage and has barely uttered a word since; Elizabeth does not appear to have any physical or mental damage. Alma speaks to Elizabeth, who attentively listens, eventually confessing her darkest secrets. The nurse's behavior turns vindictive after reading a letter composed by Elizabeth, which described Alma as an "interesting" study.
