Teenage Misha receives hypnotic treatment for sleepwalking from psychotherapist Volkov. Eventually Misha becomes so dependent on the hypnologist that he is no longer able to distinguish reality from illusion. After the mysterious death of one of Volkov’s lady patients Misha decides to investigate the case and find out the truth. But what can he do when dream and reality have become one and he himself is the chief suspect?
