Slowly, an exchange is taking place by José Teodoro
A good position at a hospital, a kind, loving professor fiance: Elisabeth's life seemed so perfectly settled before she discovered the body of a murdered woman drifting in the ravine near her house. Now she's playing hooky from work and being recruited as an actor in a wildly ambitious movie helmed by a megalomaniacal actor-turned-auteur. Somewhere a nameless older man tells old stories about freedom, sleep, and the way things vanish. Somewhere a conflicted detective uses unorthodox methods to search for a killer. Between each of these places a woman's spirit is drifting, perhaps influencing the living. And as her existence becomes more dream-like and dangerous, Elisabeth may just discover a door that could lead to a whole other life.
