As he has had the disease for years and has regressed into childhood, he remembers practically nothing from his adult life. His music, friends, all his past including the memory of his daughter are a blur in his fragile mind. All he has left is the imagination of a ten year old boy. As he drifts away into coma, it seems impossible to get back what he has lost. Or is it? The film is a journey between two different dimensions.

Absolutely fantastic piece of art, specially for Salvador Dali and Tim Burton fans, not mentioning Nightwish Anette-era fans. For just 10 millions budget they had a great work of SFX. The art of the movie fit very well in the feeling of the story and sometimes you cannot understand is this happening in the real world or in the dreams of Thomas Withman. For me this dubious atmosphere is the biggest point of the movie. And the soundtrack in my opinion was one of best of this year till now. The only thing that can be very complicated to understand for somebody is the plot, that is very complex and hard to understand. But if you do, you'll see that this is possibly one of best stories told this year. Absolutely must-watch movie!
