Based on a true story, this film follows Mark Hogancamp’s attempt to rebuild his life following a devastating attack that wipes away all his memories. To help him recover he creates an astonishing art installation, a wondrous town that’s a testament to the most powerful women he knows. Through this fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one and shows that when your only weapon is your imagination… you’ll find courage in the most unexpected place.
