Paris, the beginning of the twentieth century. A curious researcher hears the words of Vincent MacDonald, whose shadow in the history created the space for many hoaxes and speculations. The researcher asks the remarkable character about past events that led him to the interpretation of dreams, his heavy burden. Vincent conducts the line of events, which clearly and calmly recalls the beginning of his mystical journeys when he was still a banker, and his charming Eliza was alive. Her strange death causes him to quit banking and seek answers from questionable characters who come to him in a dream.
