The central character, Pam is an escapist.
Whenever she is hurt emotionally, she goes to see her mother who gives her a potion to erase the memory of her suffering. But this time, things go wrong, the potion doesn’t work and all her past comes tumbling down uncontrollably. Suddenly, she realizes that her life has been nothing but a big lie as she is forced to face reality.
