SYNOPSIS
The character M recalls encounters with extra-terrestrial life forms, including their message, ‘It is better to forget, it is pointless to remember. No one will believe you’. Are the surreal details an accurate recollection of a voyage through space, part of a drug-induced nightmare or the beginning of a mental breakdown?
