A solitary unnamed man (Alex Winters) in the heart of an immense, ruined, and forsaken megalopolis, stands on the ledge of a skyscraper that stretches miles into the sky.
He drops from atop the tower, and falls through a dizzying, dazzling panorama of surreal imagery into the realm of the unknown.
Has the man discovered a hidden portal that offers an escape from his devastated and abandoned metropolis?
Maybe it is a figment of his imagination - a way for his mind to achieve release from unimaginable loneliness and despair?
Or is his dive an act of suicide?
