When You Fall Into a Trance traces a series of complex and at times disorienting psychological and metaphysical relationships between a neuroscientist, her patient, an aid worker, and a synchronized swimmer. The film’s narrative focuses on the neuroscientist, Dominique, as she confronts a patient’s complex neurological condition. As Dominique becomes fascinated with the condition and the resulting behavior, her work and personal life come together in unsettling and confounding ways. (2014, 72 min)
