Claire, a woman who suffers from a strange form of amnesia, wakes up every morning with no memory, yet retains her sunny disposition. She´s eager to unearth who she really is, and on this particular morning she´s in for the most jam-packed day of discovery imaginable, meeting a series of bizarre characters along the way. A husband she does not know, a lisping, limping disfigured man who claims to be her brother, her stroke-impaired mother, a cop who may or may not be a cop and a convict on the run who can only express himself through a foul-mouthed sock puppet.
