Grown tired of writing for cheap newspapers and living the average Joe's life, an author in his mid 20's set out to backpack wherever the wind would take him. Years later he suffers from retrograde amnesia after an accident he can't remember anymore.
Reading letters he received from people all around the world, the author is able to understand fragments of his forgotten journey. He takes part in testing an innovative new hypnosis. During a state of artificial coma his mind is projected into a specifically constructed dream. He is only allowed to wake up if he succeeds picking up the loose ends, restoring every defining memory of his year long travels.
