When life clings by a fragile thread it seems that nothing might be impossible. Even reality might fracture and send a girl to a place beyond imagining where she may even stumble upon an unexpected romance. Back in the everyday world life goes on, crimes and plots unfold and the comatose are left vulnerable to those without mercy... Unless a man can overcome his disbelief and save her.
