Ingrid can see in her dreams. The way the world around her looks, her husband’s office, their favourite restaurant… memories. It’s when Ingrid awakes each morning and opens her eyes that she suddenly remembers she is blind.

With her life suddenly and dramatically changed, Ingrid has retreated to the safety of her apartment where she can feel in control once again. Her imagination becomes her reality – her deepest fantasies, desires and fears provide a constant internal monologue. Inventing her own world to substitute the one she has lost. But how can she make sense of all that is happening to her and who can she trust now?

A playful, touching and thought-provoking story of a young woman’s journey to rediscovering herself, her husband and the life that she once knew.
