Anna Young has always been the perfect daughter. One day, Anna's attitude dramatically changes, leaving her parents worried. Unable to figure out what has happened to their daughter, Anna's parents take her to Dr. Artmann's clinic for unruly children. At the clinic Anna is exposed to a variety of obstacles in a complex labyrinth. The only way out of the maze for Anna is to complete the tasks in the right way.
