In the story with a talented young architect, a mysterious and terrible accident occurs. The guy comes to his senses, but the world in which he woke up is far from his usual reality, although in many ways it is similar to life before the accident. The world in which the main character finds himself is the memory of those who are in a deep coma. The reality in which the guy finds himself consists of chaotic fragments of people's memories.
The parallel world and the events taking place in it remain unnoticed by those around: for those who are “on the other side” a person in a coma is simply a patient in a hospital with almost no signs of life.
A world called "KOMA" is a bizarre collection of human memory. Here you can easily accommodate mountains and rivers in the space of an ordinary room, there are no physical laws.
The hero must learn to survive in the new reality, so as not to disappear. The new world will give him true love, adventure and the search for a way out into his familiar life, as well as an understanding of what real COMA is.

The script of the picture was written by Alexei Gravitsky, who is well known to fans of science fiction - Gravitsky is the author of many novels and fantasy novels.
The film received government support from the Cinema Foundation.
