Eugene, an ageing man, leads a double life – one real, the other in his dreams. He goes to see a psychoanalyst, who tries to interpret the meaning of his dreams. Eugene finds a way of entering his dream-world at will and finds out about his childhood and what really happened to his parents. When his wife forces him to make the decision between reality and dream, he finally chooses the dream-world.
“I’ve always wanted to make a film in which dream blends with reality, and vice-versa. As Georg Christoph Lichtenberg tells us, only the Psion of dream and reality can make up a complete human life. Sadly, our civilization has no time for dreams.There’s no money in them.” Jan Švankmajer
