ADAM FILDER doesn't believe in premonitions – he's an experienced, well-respected surgeon, trusting his skills, his knowledge and the science. Until one day when he starts having incredibly accurate dreams about his future patients and how to treat them.
Under pressure from desperate cases and from Stitch – an uncontrollable character, a product of his own mind and dreams – Adam follows the procedures on his real-life patients and ends up saving lives in the most impossible circumstances. He's hooked.
Obsessed with remembering every second of his dreams, Adam and his friend Gene build a Dream Machine to reconstruct his dream stories. The result is good, but Adam wants more. He agrees to have his brain connected to the machine and operate under a highly augmented cognition with instant access to a world of libraries of medical research. But the upgrade comes at a huge cost: Adam is unable to distinguish between reality and his dreams anymore, between his human consciousness and the extended consciousness, between being a human and an intelligent neuronal structure trapped in a limited body. He begins a desperate search to find a way to recognise his friends, his patients, his passions and ultimately himself.
