The story is based on real events about a man who, in a state of psychosis, created a woman for himself.
Aki V resigned from his job as a computer software designer at Nokia Virtuals, developed schizophrenia and isolated himself in his studio flat. His mind started to produce a reality of its own in sounds and visions. Little by little, this fiction became flesh and blood and the line between reality and imagination blurred. Imagined people and events stepped out of Aki V’s head and became parallel with the surrounding reality. The leading character in this new world was Anne Nyberg, Aki’s fiancée.
