Graduating photography student Dakota Collins is heartbroken when Luka Visraya, bassist of popular indie rock band Vicious and Dakota’s object of affection, admits he is still in love with someone else. After her one-month photography stint/school project with the band, and Luka’s confession, Dakota leaves the band’s residence, the Lunar Manor.
Dakota finds solace from her heartbreak and recurring, worsening nightmares in Laurel “Larry” Hardy, editor-in-chief of the college paper, The Daily Gossip; as well as in her Introspective being the best for the school year. However, when Vicious asks her back to be their official touring photographer, Dakota finds it hard to refuse. Reunited with Luka, Dakota is thrust into a strangely familiar world she did not know really existed—and finds the truth behind her nightmares, about herself.
