A scientific experiment to confirm the consciousness of a young, comatose woman results in an ethereal love affair that's doomed in this visionary sci-fi romance from director Kristina Buozyte (The Collectress). When a team of scientists design a complex series of sensory-deprivation experiments aimed at making contact with catatonic Aurora (Jurga Jutaite), Lukas (Marius Jampolskis) volunteers as a test subject. Incredibly, Lukas not only manages to reach through to Aurora, he also enters into a deeply erotic, psychic romance with her that transcends the boundaries of physical reality. With the researchers none the wiser, Aurora and Lucas connect in a series of clandestine meetings set against a phantasmagorical backdrop created by their shared subconscious. But this romance can't last, and as their marvelous alternate realm comes crumbling down, Aurora and Lukas are torn apart by powerful forces beyond their both their comprehension, and their control.
