Plot – This movie tells the story of Joan Crawford's life as seen through the eyes of her adopted daughter Christine, who wrote a book about the famous actress. Joan Crawford did not leave in her will a penny to her adopted children, but Christine had the last say by writing a biography. She was a neurotic alcoholic, sometimes hysterical and paranoid, with unexpected anger bursts and sadistic behavior towards the children. It is not clear why she adopted four children only to torture and take out her frustrations on them. Christine was twice sent to a college, the second of which was a kind of house of correction.
