A cartoonist falls from a car park roof and is left with partial amnesia. His journey to recovery is hampered by a growing inability to distinguish between real and imaginary events. The characters from his cartoon strip assume a grimy reality while the lives of his family and friends appear ever more unreal. He begins to wonder if he has woken up in the wrong story.
