Synopsis

Wealthy housewife, Carol White, more anaesthetised than alienated, fills the empty hours with aerobic classes, lunches and buying couches. But her world of domestic oblivion careers of its axis when she becomes allergic to her environment – car fumes, the dry-cleaners and even the new couch. Welcoming retreat, she finally ends up in a creepy New Age Healing Center. From what was very little in the first place, Carol’s life disintegrates to practically nothing at all…
