    • Synopsis
    • Edvin is confused about this woman who will not go away, and cannot summon the courage to do anything about the situation. He lets her carry on a day-to-day existence in his apartment, and he continues with his routine. Edvin’s dreams become disturbing, and Tasya starts to have the same dreams. She becomes aggressive towards him and he feels his space is being taken over. He catches her doing odd things, but begins to doubt his perception of reality.
      One night, he takes steps to regain control of the situation but Tasya ignores the attempt and he is left feeling helpless. That night, he develops a fever and in the morning he cannot move. Tasya nurses him but he feels like she is keeping him incapacitated. For the first time, Tasya leaves the apartment to explore the city. She starts living as if it is her apartment and her life, and that he is the one imposing.
      One day, Edvin summons all his strength to get out of bed. He cannot find his belongings in the apartment except some clothes in a suitcase, as if he is the visitor. With great difficulty he leaves the house and tries to orient himself in the world again, but finds himself on the rooftop of a strange building, fog obscuring his view of the city. Tasya appears and they have an altercation. She leaves but when Edvin tries to go, he cannot find any stairs to get off the roof.
      His fever returns and he passes out. His strange dreams continue and that night Tasya once again dreams the same. When Edvin wakes, he wakes in the body of Tasya. She puts on a security uniform and goes to work as if it is the most ordinary thing in the world. Edvin’s physical being has ceased to exist and Tasya has taken over his life and soul completely.
