John West has it all... A beautiful girl, a great job he loves, a wonderful life. But is it all just a hallucination? After six years in a coma, John wakes up to find his beautiful life swept away in a storm of experimental drugs, and he has no recollection of his pre-coma existence. His choice is clear: Stay in a drab world not of his making and beyond his control, or return to his happy life in the "other" world.
