Aven likes to get things off his mind by spending his free time in a virtual reality game, which is set in a mysterious, seductive and ambiguous world. This fantasy world is the perfect contrast to his rather boring every-day life, which is determined by a monotonous call center job. Soon, however, this game threatens to take over his life and Aven becomes obsessed with a mysterious red-haired woman. What started as a game eventually becomes bitter reality, where boundaries are non-existent. Has this game become reality or is reality nothing more than a game?
