Only in the moment of extreme crisis is our true character revealed.

On the surface, Robert is a successful, happily married man, skillfully navigating midlife transitions. Then while traveling for business, he survives a harrowing plane crash and risks his life to rescue fellow passengers from the burning wreckage. The media dubs him the Plane Crash Hero, but Robert has disappeared from the scene. He is discovered days later in a hotel room with the woman who was sitting next to him on the plane. He remembers nothing. He has no way to explain.

A psychiatrist diagnoses his experience as a “fugue state” brought on by the trauma of the accident. Robert’s lack of memory causes guilt, confusion, and distress, yet he is determined to put the incident behind him. That’s not easy to do. He loses his temper with his daughter, melts down at work, thinks he’s being stalked by strangers, and resents that his wife will no longer make love to him.

As a series of unwanted memories slowly return, Robert wonders if he is really the man he believed himself to be, or have unconscious desires taken control of his life.
