Johan draws on paper sheets on his desk in his small apartment. Memories from the past, from Beckomberga mental hospital, stalk him. Frustrated, he throws away his drawings one after another. As night comes, he surrenders to sleep and the attempts of art that he discarded come to life, taking over the night and his room.
