Mette (Circé Lethem) is in the final phase of her rehabilitation, when one day Miller (Lien Wildemeersch) pays a visit, trying to get Mette to testify against Frank; Miller’s boyfriend who apparently put Mette in a wheelchair. Mette can’t seem to remember anything. Then, left alone and in a haze of medication and increasing anxiety, she has time to reminisce.
In an escalating puzzle-like narrative, we inhabit Mette’s consciousness and see the events in the film unfolding through her fractured memory…
