On an island where having dreams means being branded a maniac and everyone has their own place in society the harsh laws of Dr. Sigmundus reign control of every aspect of life. Dante is nothing but a kitchen boy, while Bea is the daughter of physicians. The two meet accidentally and quickly grow fast as friends. They start to share their ideas and their dreams and knowing how dangerous it was to do so. With the arrival of a infamous prisoner to the islands asylum they begin to wonder if all promises they've based their life on is nothing more than an illusion in the scheme of things. Will they turn their backs on everything they've ever knew and fight or will they stay and be broken down by the promises of Dr. Sigmundas?
