Sarah’s marriage to Donald is in jeopardy as she struggles to accept the loss of her young son. She suffers from horrible nightmares that tempt her with clues about her son’s disappearance. Sarah’s therapist treats her with a bizarre form of hypno-affirmation therapy in the living room of the family’s home in an effort to uncover buried details about her son’s mysterious disappearance. The strange technique is successful at uncovering repressed memories, and reveals that Lucas knowingly left his family to join the ‘star people,’ a group of supernatural entities with whom he ‘belongs’. The story shows how mothers can learn to accept and encourage the unorthodox life paths of their children.
