Parallel Memories
This is the story of the journey of a young man called Theo.
Theo is actually in a coma and he is obviously not aware of his condition. Although, his mind travels through three different scenarios where he is going to deal with three different characters which will give slight indications to why he is there.
The protagonist feels extremely confused because he does not know where he is and why he is there, who these people are and especially why his hands are covered in blood every time the scenario changes.
The first place where he wakes up is in the woods, where he meets an old woman who tries to relieve his confused state by reading tarot cards to him. The three tarot cards she gets will help Theo to understand why it is that he’s in a coma, the truth and the judgement he will face from his overall life decisions.
The second figure he encounters is a young woman on a boat, who immediately starts to behave very gleefully and pretends not to notice his confusion. She jokes around with a melancholy attitude and also manages to take a picture of him with a polaroid camera. However, as soon as she reveals to know his identity, she vanishes as the old woman did right before.
Eventually, Theo is catapulted into a dark surreal space where he meets a marionette looking exactly like him which abruptly starts talking. The puppet, apparently representing his own conscience, will psychologically tease Theo and force him to wake up from the coma to join the “reality”.
When Theo wakes up, he realises that there are two figures sitting next to him: the old woman, who is actually his grandma and the young woman, who is actually his best friend. After these two people are taken away by the doctors and nurses, Theo notices the three tarot cards and polaroid picture on the bedside table next to him. Finally by looking at his hands he realises that his wrists are bandaged because what he actually did was attempt suicide.
Afterwards when everything seems to make sense, the doctor starts talking to him but almost immediately Theo understands that the doctor talks like the marionette and by looking at his face, he will surprisingly realize that the doctor is the marionette which still looks like himself.
The final plot twist leaves the audience with an unanswered question about Theo’s fate, because we do not understand which reality he is actually living in and if he has received his judgment.
