Sine, a bright architect who is troubled by the shape of present-day architecture, designs an
innovative, cave-like mosque inspired by the Seven Sleepers myth. The construction phase is
beset with problems. Traumatized, Sine develops insomnia. She finally sleeps at a sleep disorder
clinic and sees herself in the myth of the Seven Sleepers. Waking from the dream, Sine has
changed physically and psychologically. However no one else is aware of this change. Each time
she goes to the clinic, she changes and each time her new selves act differently.
