The protagonist of this novel sci-fi romance is a young scientist named Lukas. He is participating in an unusual experiment that sends him into the mind of an unknown woman in a coma. Finding himself in another world, Lukas is impatient to immerse himself deeper and deeper, oblivious that it is beginning to fundamentally influence his own life in the real world.


Synopsis

Young Lukas, highly devoted to his work as a neuroinformatics scientist, becomes involved in an unusual international experiment. By means of neural transfer, he sets out on a journey into the mind of an unknown woman in a coma. With the help of Aurora, Lukas’s private name for his anonymous host, he immerses himself into a world which brings him new experiences and emotions. At the same time, however, these "excursions” begin to fundamentally influence and damage his real life. Is it possible to live in two worlds at the same time? After her provocative debut The Collectress (2008), talented young Lithuanian director Kristina Buožytė returns to the screen with a visually stunning sci-fi romance in an investigation of human desire.
