A film about the basic need for human connection and love. The title refers not only to a doctor’s inadequate yet poetic description of what it’s like to be in a coma, but also to the psychological state one can enter when dealing with trauma.

1.5 Why was this film made? The script is full of tired cliches, from "Mysterious/Dangerous Night Club" to "Freudian Mother Problems", which it tries to pass off as a psychological thriller. Unfortunately the wigs and the actors are also subpar, and thus the film is DOA. Michael Shannon, in a supporting role, is the one bright spot. Apparently the end should be satisfying as the single woman now has a man again.
