Sylvia (Claire Rushbrook) is in hospital suffering from memory loss. She cannot remember anything about her life. The treatment she is undergoing is radical - she is suspended above the floor, hanging by her neck. Medical staff assure her that this way 'everything will fall into place'.
As she hangs, Sylvia is visited by a series of figures, including her husband (Philip Jackson), her daughter (Emerald O'Hanrahan) and a man (Carl Prekopp), calling himself her friend, whom she cannot recognize.
