A rainy, dusky afternoon in 2030. Virtual Reality has failed for a wide-range use, due to the pandemic. Lucid dreaming devices are becoming more popular. A girl gets lost at a train station. When she finds herself staring at a sign in the waiting room, a bachelor party passes by and sells her a raspberry chewy for a ridiculous amount of money. Now everyone she touches gets pulled into her own mental chaos. And one of them is nearly as confused as herself. Together, they have to find a way out of the labyrinth of her mind.

Trying not to panic, the girl in the long coat scanned the room for exactly three free seats, so she could sit two seats apart from whoever she would meet.
A flood of cold smoke blew in everyone’s face, before the big glass doors slid open and a warm-looking waiting room with yellow plastic seats appeared behind them.
As unrecognizable as possible, a tall, white haired girl in a long, drenched coat stepped on the threshold. Her sleeves were brown from the coffee she spilled, shivering, onto them. Folding the wet fabric in, she moved her eyes around the room. Trying not to panic, she scanned the room for exactly three free seats, so she could sit two seats apart from whoever she would meet.
After one and a half hours of searching for a wifi hotspot, she grew tired, bought a newspaper (to not totally lose grip of the world around her) and finally found a place to sit in this huge desolate complex. It didn’t seem to be built for people anyway, let alone comfort.
Yet there was the warm-looking waiting area, being exactly as cold as the outside, but strangely inviting and surprisingly spacey.
And there was it, the place, one seat away from the passage, three ones away from the guy, sleeping with his chin on his massive belly.
Half an hour passed with her trying to read the news without losing control of the huge paper chaos in her hands, as the doors slid aside and revealed a shattered group of party people with huge pink costumes, that staggered into the room.
