A patient recounts for her analyst a dream she has of 12 gold cups that were lost. The analyst's wife is convinced that they are the same cups that they hid and lost when fleeing the Nazis year earlier.

A psychiatrist sees a patient who shares with him and his wife gifts that appear to be clues to a lost family treasure. He finds it hard to believe that this young woman could know anything about the golden chalices they buried in their old family estate in the old country when they fled from Hitler's army. His wife is adamant and seeks to understand every little clue she can create out of the young girl's stories and gifts.


Not too bad of a story, but I did grow a little weary of the wife interpreting things one way and the husband dismissing it. It's an alright story, but difficult for me to put into a specific genre.


The psychoanalyst was a clueless a$$ and his attitude was contrary to his patient's treatment.

What did the therapy have to do with anything? Wouldn't it have made more sense if she was seeing him for a condition more related to his circumstances?


Psychoanalyst Hans von Fodor is reminded of the flight he and his wife made from Hungary 30 years ago by the stories and gifts of Mary Roth, Hans’ patient. Shortly after their wedding, Hans and Lili von Fodor were forced to flee from their native Kispest and leave behind a precious wedding gift; 12 golden chalices buried beneath a cherry tree. Mary now seems to be leading them on another fruitless search for the lost cups.
