An inspiring tale of a woman’s determination; Mrs. Packard follows the life of the titular character, as she is forced into an asylum against her will. She is perfectly sane and sensible, but her husband and doctors are sided against her. So, from within the asylum she works to prove her sanity, earn her release, and advocate for the other women who have been mistreated by the asylum’s staff.
