Synopsis

A mysterious man signs himself into the psychiatric hospital. He claims to come from another planet to study humans and their behaviour. The new patient is gentle but criticizes humans for their harsh treatment of each other. His assigned psychiatrist, lonely and depressed, is working through his own unhappiness. He finds himself affected by the patient's insight, but he is ordered to treat the patient according to institutional procedure. In the end, the man's madness and his extra-terrestrial origins seem to be equally strong possibilities; the educated, well-meaning psychiatrist is unable to choose between the two.

-----

Un hombre misterioso se da de alta el mismo en un hospital psiquiátrico. Afirma que viene de otro planeta para estudiar a los humanos y su comportamiento. El nuevo paciente es gentil pero critica a los humanos por su trato severo entre ellos. Su psiquiatra asignado, solitario y deprimido, está trabajando a través de su propia infelicidad. Se ve afectado por la percepción del paciente, pero se le ordena tratar al paciente de acuerdo con el procedimiento institucional. Al final, la locura del hombre y sus orígenes extraterrestres parecen ser posibilidades igualmente fuertes; el psiquiatra educado y bien intencionado no puede elegir entre los dos.
