Dreams can seem very real and in the world there is a growing fascination with the concept of virtual reality. Virtual reality appears so real that the line seems blurred between imagination, fantasy and the stories of the world. Similarly the line between nighttime dreams and daily living can seem blurred. What if you are unaware that you are dreaming because it all seems so real? What if the dream only reflects your unconscious wishes, desires and whims? And what if you have the power to allow the nightmares to be released in order to dream a happy dream of nonjudgment instead?
David Ames is in prison for murder. While wearing a prosthetic mask, he tells his life story to a court psychologist. In flashback, David is an active bachelor and wealthy owner of a publishing firm. He falls in love with his best friend's girlfriend, Sofía, but before the relationship begins he is coaxed into a car that crashes, resulting in his facial disfigurement. Reconstructive surgery and the support of Sofía seem to provide relief, but unusual incidents are soon making him question the reality of his existence and his control over his life.
There is a leap of faith required in laying aside all attempts to control the dream. Yet in the leap there is bliss, for the dream is given back anew from the Holy Spirit. The world will end in joy and laughter because it is only an illusion of a place of sadness and sorrow. A happy dream is given you to take the place of all nightmares that seemed to haunt your holy mind. Welcome to the real world beloved child of God. Welcome Home!
