Alice works as a translator who finds the real world slowly merging with her nightmares as she tries to figure out her memory loss for the past days. A postcard leads her to an island where people seems to know her. And the astronauts from her dream is getting more real.

Florinda Bolkan is the perfect casting of Alice. A great and twisted movie. We learn to unveil the story together with Alice and the way she understands it. This works perfectly. The director and cinematographer does a splendid job. The story is surreal, nightmarish and interesting and keeps you fully focused all the way. This one will stick with me for a long time.
