Claire’s uncle has just been in a terrible motorcycle accident. She escapes into her dreams where another girl Clara comes alive. Clara lives in another place altogether – surrounded by rubbish and broken buildings. She must stay inside at night to avoid the Rangers and rabid dogs that prowl her streets. Clara too has someone she loves who needs medical care. Her friend Andrew needs medicine and in her search she ends up in Claire’s world. But which world is real? Claire’s or Clara’s….
An eerie but poetic story of parallel worlds, between dreams of consciousness, dealing with grief, loss and love.
