Technology makes it possible to enter the subconscious mind and influence dreams. A young couple does just that after one of them attempts suicide. Things go awry when it becomes difficult for each of them to distinguish the real world from the realm of dreams, or actual memories from wishes or fears. They hesitate to influence each other out of the desire to know if they are truly loved or if they are merely manipulating the other or being manipulated themselves. There are so many possibilities. It is a fascinating theme, yet towards the end of the film the plot gets out of control. There are just too many loose ends, including the chemistry between the couple. Seen at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
