In a heavily industrialized and military world, a factory worker, Alex, gets¬†suddenly sick. Soon his¬†fever brings him visions of strange folk¬†talking to¬†him. And somehow, they seem¬†familiar...he's seen them before.¬†After he recovers and¬†finds out that more people are having the same symptoms and dreams, he starts¬†investigating.¬†There is a strange¬†disease that allows people to momentarily visit a parallel world¬†where their childhood fantasies have evolved into a complex fantastical society. The doctors call this place¬†Pirexia, and they realize¬†people can drag objects from there to the real world while¬†they heal. These objects are addictive and get you in the same feverish state you need to cross the border between both worlds.¬†This sparks a black market for¬†Pirexia's tickets.¬†Like many others, Alex gets addicted to these¬†objects. He tries¬†to stay as long as possible in Pirexia, where he falls in love. But it has a cost and his health and body start failing. Everything changes when the army¬†finds out what¬īs going on and arranges an invasion to dig out the resources from¬†this oneiric¬†realm. Alex¬†will have to force his health to the limit¬†to save his love and friends on the other side¬†and then let go and never see them again.
