A multi-leveled psychological thriller in which normal life becomes a horror story.

A harrowing divorce has driven Joonas to the verge of suicide. Clutching at straws, he begins using an alternative hypnotherapy meant to help people find healing powers in their subconscious. A glimmer of hope appears in Joonas’ life as it looks like he might be ready for a new relationship. His therapy sessions, too, take a turn for the better when he meets a living creature for the first time while in a hypnotic state. It is a strange dog, which clearly wants to lead him somewhere. Is the dog from his trances just a figment of his imagination or something strange and dangerous?
