Soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are transferred to a clinic in a former school. The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for volunteer Jenjira, as she watches over Itt, a soldier with no family visitors. Jen befriends Keng, a medium who uses her powers to help loved ones communicate with the comatose men. Jen discovers Itt's notebook of cryptic writings and blueprint sketches. There may be a connection between the soldiers' enigmatic syndrome and the mythic site lying beneath the clinic. Magic, healing, and dreams are all part of Jen's path to deeper awareness of herself and her world.
