On the day Jimmy is scheduled to undergo a dangerous operation, faith takes a turn for the bizarre. His home is steadily turning into a hospital and slowly Jimmy realises he is already under aesthetic. His sub consciousness is confronting him with his deepest fears. The only way to save himself is to somehow regain control over his dreams...
Short scenes in black-and-white show how a man hangs around in his living room and loses his grip on reality. He stands up, falls down, does not know what to do with himself. His environment slowly changes into a hospital room. Conversations with his girlfriend are not very smooth, either. 'It's such a mess in my head.' Next, he discovers his brain surgery is already taking place and visions appear. Including a flashing animation clip.
