Residency Project

Suffering from amnesia after a car accident, we are accused of the murder of Grace, a nineteen-year-old woman whose body was found in the wreckage. To help the police conduct the investigation, a hypnotherapist will immerse us back in our memory. 

Under hypnosis, the spectator will fall in the inner world of the character, a strange and dark universe where some parts of the past are either missing or incomplete. They will have to recompose the puzzle of the character’s memories to understand who they are and solve the mystery of Grace’s death.
