Christine wakes in a strange bed beside a man she does not recognise. In the bathroom shefinds a photograph of him taped to the mirror, and beneath it the words 'Your husband'.
Each day, Christine wakes knowing nothing of her life. Each night, her mind erases the day. Butbefore she goes to sleep, she will recover fragments from her past, flashbacks to the accidentthat damaged her, and then-mercifully-she will forget.
