Soma

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets Brazil

cw19A dystopian puzzle of a story set in a future where every problem can be solved with a good night’s sleep … A world governed by vast computers and a utopian democracy…

…but for Jason sleep is the one thing that will never be the same. Firstly there is the dark woman…the alien attacks on the city…his raging hard-on… the ‘vague terror’…  the three doors… and the four towers. If that wasn’t enough it seems a gang of political terrorists want him to join them in smashing the system.

From the lowest depths to the top of society Jason’s path leads him out of the city and back again, a Sisyphean struggle and quite literally the dreams of all mankind.

Some days it would be better to just stay in bed.
