A story of a young woman living in New York. She’s wealthy, beautiful, well-educated and… miserable. It’s year 2000, beginning of a new millenium, future looks bright and yet, nothing seems to help her - unknowingly stuck in a prolonged mourning, she’s unable to engage in any real relationship or to find any actual meaning in the silhouette of a life she’s living. Searching for a change, she decides to „log out” of the unsatisfying dailyness - using a mixture of psychotropic drugs, she plans to spend one year in a deeply unconscious state and wake up to a brand new her. Reborn, happy, alive. However, the deeper the state she dives in and the stronger the meds that allow the dive, the more she’s forced to confront her memories and repressed emotions.
