A young boy -- blue-eyed, blonde, and delicate -- plays at a dripping water fountain behind the counter of an empty Manhattan restaurant. Set to the jazzed pace of a rolling drum and smoky saxophone, he turns from the camera and runs back to the kitchen, pushing through the saloon style doors to find himself in a barren hospital room. The next doorway leads to an early 20th Century apartment, where a woman maternally holds the boy’s hands through a quick swing-around dance. He exits right to find the entryway to a tunnel.
Few would have guessed that, once New York’s hottest trend-spotter, Tess Brighton had suffered a mental breakdown seven years earlier and was institutionalized. After her discharge, Tess starts having lifelike dreams of giving birth to a son – and she might have been convinced that she was actually crazy, if not for an offer from millionaire tech mogul Bill Boerg.
