A middle-aged Texas mother slowly buckling under the constant demands of modern life sets out on a strange quest after experiencing vivid visions of a sprawling urban loft in director Kyle Henry's haunting tale of modern malaise. Julia (Cyndi Williams) is a suburban wife and mother who is overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated at home. With Christmas rapidly approaching and her personal happiness at an all-time low, Julia begins to experience an increasingly painful series of migraines that are curiously accompanied by elusive visions of a large loft in a noticeable state of disrepair. When Julia experiences a particularly powerful vision that causes her to careen off of the road in daytime traffic, she is compelled to steal money from work, board a plane for New York City, and follow her visions toward an uncertain future that seems strangely tied to the constant reports of violence which saturate the nightly news.
