    • Synopsis
    • Based on a true story, HYSTERIA is a romantic comedy set in Victorian England about the invention of the first vibrator.
      Victorian England, 1880. Mortimer Granville, a young doctor sick of his colleagues' medieval practices, starts working for Dr Dalrymple, who treats women's "hysteria" by offering them intimate manual relief... Demand is so great that Mortimer fears for the use of his hands. With the help of his friend Edmund, a millionaire dandy with a passion for electricity, he comes up with the world's first vibrator, which proves wildly successful. Along the way, he falls in love with Dalrymple's fiery, beautiful oldest daughter, Charlotte. But there are other, loving eyes fixed on the good doctor...
