Mona tells a social worker her life story in order to regain custody of her daughter, whom she left in the care of her fortune-telling aunt. The tale she spins is a wild, surreal adventure in which people are able to project and enter each other's dreams. Mona is sold into slavery and lands in a swank, debauched Liverpool brothel where the patrons enact their literary sexual fantasies with Lolita, St. Joan, and Desdemona. Rendered with dazzling tracking shots, striking CGI effects and a pulsing soundtrack, Hungarian director Szabolcs Hajdu's risk-taking fantasy has style to spare. Under the seductive surface lurks the very human story of a woman who uses fantasy to cushion the pain of life.
