Moving forward

The film opens on a water-skiing accident - a girl (Délie) drives a speedboat and pulls a young man (Stan). They are both challenging their own limits when a crash occurs... Stan wakes up from a coma, to find out that genealogists are looking for an individual whose identity corresponds to his. Instead of asking himself questions about this testamentary filiations, he subscribes for Professor Starkov's legacy, and embarks for the country of Las Estrellas... Intuition and telepathy accelerates the journey in time. Dharma Guns revisits the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice...
