A 12-year-old boy babysitting his
younger sister, turns his back for a moment, during
which she and a friend get hit by a bus crossing
the street. Deep in a coma, the sister's condition
is dire and further frays the estranged parents
relationship and plunges the brother into deep depression.
The only hope is a radical form of treatment devised
by an eccentric researcher. In the researcher's
treatment, a person enters the comatose person's
mind and tries to communicate with them and bring
them back to consciousness. With time running out
the guilt-racked brother volunteers for the job.
