Synopsis

Eleanor is a renowned children’s author and illustrator. A car accident has left her in a coma. Before Eleanor is taken off life support, her daughter Astra is given the chance to undertake an experimental treatment that will allow her to enter Eleanor’s mind, for one last goodbye... Astra’s presence triggers a surprising reaction. Eleanor’s mind comes to life, transporting Astra to the magical world of her famous book series. As Astra explores tree-houses in the sky, stunning ice fields and enchanted forests she discovers the disturbing truth behind her mother’s accident.

Director’s Statement

Lucid was an opportunity to explore the fading imagination of a beautiful mind. This is a topic very close to my heart because of personal experience with dementia.
The audience is granted access to the final, intimate moments between a mother and daughter as we celebrate the life of a beautiful soul.
