The film is about Avarna, a sixteen-year old girl who attends high school in a suburban area of Australia. When she was younger she had an accident that involved her falling off a playground and hitting her head, causing her to loose her sight of colour. However, her dreams occasionally appear in colour, mostly when they are reminiscent of her childhood before the accident. In the film she has one of these dreams, in which she sees a girl with red hair, and soon recognises her as one of her past babysitters. As Avarna goes through her normal, daily life she continues to dream about the babysitter, and comes to confuse the dreams for real memories. She begins to feel that she understands her past babysitter more now that she is older, and bizarrely develops a connection with her, which causes her to become more distant from reality. But after her older sister and an old photograph disprove her "memories", she has to come to realise that the inevitable changes that occur over time, and only then can she begin to understand the changes in herself.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
