When you have nothing to live for, does choosing to exist in your own reality, make you insane? If so, isn't that better than suicide?
Ann is floating away and needs someone to ground her, but her parents are in Europe and her best friend is too self-absorbed. She is alone in the family mansion with her memories of her dead brother and freaky flashbacks from her childhood. The only person there for her is the housekeeper, who seems nice, but she has some very strange habits. All she can think about is her brother, Pauly, and how everything would be okay if he were still alive. After she breaks her leg in a bizarre accident, Ann's not-so-ordinary normal life veers rapidly into the weird zone. She is plummeted into a half-real world of mythological creatures, riddles and epic violence, but populated by the people in her normal life. Through the semi-reality of her quest-life Ann discovers the unimaginable actuality of her family history and how facing the truth and standing up for what is right redeems her, in her quest-life. Still anguished and lost in the real world, Ann comes to question the validity of reality, and whether there is there anything true in either of her worlds. If not, then is she free to choose in which she will live?
