Can there be a parallel universe? A successful lawyer finds himself in prison and later robbing a bank in one while in another he experiences disturbing images of events occurring in the first. His melancholy and strange behavior causes him and his wife to separate. He thinks he is going insane yet physical and psychological examinations fail to show that. Their daughter is successful in her career and happily married, but their son lacks ambition and day-dreams of flying airplanes. Reluctant to divulge his troubling images to doctors, the lawyer seeks help from a Chinese marriage counselor to quell the images and thoughts disturbing him. Two foundlings who grew up feeling unwanted in an orphanage cross paths with the lawyer in one level and on another with the son while angry `patriots' plan a deadly attack on the government and its leaders but they and the son disrupt their plans. The lawyer and his wife reconcile in an unusual way while other couples also find their `true path' after making destructive choices based on their lower levels of emotions.
