After deciding to pursue a career as a writer, Sibyl, who currently works as a psychologist, begins the emotional process of “breaking up” with her patients. But just as she’s letting go of all her old patients, one new patient sparks her interest. Margot, a young beautiful actress, is having an affair with Igor, the male lead in her current film; and their affair is as messy as it gets. Not only is Igor married to the film’s director, but also Margot is pregnant with his child. Distraught over what to do, Margot comes to Sibyl desperate for help, revealing the most intimate parts of her life in great detail. Sibyl, captivated by Margot’s story, begins to record their sessions to use as inspiration in her novel... unbeknownst to her vulnerable patient. As their sessions continue, professional boundaries deteriorate, and Sibyl’s and Margot’s lives become disturbingly intertwined in a way that harms them both. A psychological drama exploring identity, heartbreak, and fixation, SIBYL follows a troubled psychologist as her creative interest slips into wild obsession.
