A battle of head versus heart in an environment where reality, memory, imagination and hallucination merge and unravel in the mind of one man caught in the ultimate dilemma: does truth exist or is reality just a choice? Anton, a hugely successful playwright and psychiatric patient, has been given the opportunity, whether by imagination or hallucination, to be able to live in a world of his own choosing - a world that he has created for himself - but a visit from the past causes him to examine whether he should continue to live in his alternate universe, or allow himself to be 'cured'.
