Many years ago, I watched Alfred Hitchcock's The Wrong Man
based on a true story about a man, Manny Balestrero, falsely accused of armed robbery in the early part of the 1950s. While the story in itself is terrifying to think about, what struck me and stays with me to this day is Manny's wife's reaction to the series of events. Rose Balestrero becomes increasingly depressed and is eventually institutionalized. According to the film, it would take more than two years for her to recover.
