Five characters suffering from a condition called ‘excessive daydreaming’ come together to talk about the fantasies they have been creating daily over the years. They tell stories about the constant daydreams that keep them awake and which cause them to lead a kind of double life.
Nelson dreams that he is a famous gay singer and actor. Ana is Jaime, a former scriptwriter aged 92. Sandra’s imaginary world is a magical place where she is a heroine with superpowers. Deborah is Kevin, a dangerous drug dealer and Andrés’ daydream involves the daughter he never had.
This script is based on real life stories collected by Marcus Lindeen (Los Arrepentidos) from a group of people with this condition. It portrays the inner worlds in which these characters find both satisfaction and anguish.
