Bedridden after a freak accident, a novelist begins to question his own sanity as he moves through dreamlike memories of his own fictional characters.
Injured in a freak accident, novelist Gerry Andersen lies in a hospital bed in his glamorous but sterile apartment, isolated from the busy world he can see through his windows. He is utterly dependent on two women he barely knows: his young assistant and a night nurse whose competency he questions. As he moves in and out of dreamlike memories and seemingly random appearances of a persistent ex-girlfriend at his bedside, Gerry fears he may be losing his grip on reality, much like his mother who recently passed away from dementia. He believes he's being plagued by strange telephone calls, in which a woman claiming to be Audrey, the titular character of his hit novel Dream Girl, swears she will be coming to see him soon. Is he the victim of a cruel prank, or is he actually losing his mind? -- adapted from jacket
