Synopsis

Dr. Joanna Summers is a psychologist. Her patient, retired war veteran William is suffering from a recurring dream involving a close friend who died during combat. His deceased best friend, Jack, appears in bloody armor in William's dreams very night. In addition to the dream he is also suffering from retrograde amnesia, William is trying to find out why he is having these dreams from Joanna. Joanna is using hypnosis to analyze the reason for William's dream. During their sessions, Joanna finds out the relationship between Jack and William. She analyzes the symbolism in his dreams and realizes that his amnesia is related to his recurring dream and may be an indirect cause. Through their hypnosis sessions, Joanna finds out that William killed Jack because he was in love with Jack's fiancee and mutual friend of theirs, Sandra. William remembers the truth after their hypnosis session but he refuses to admit it. He asks Joanna what he revealed. Joanna wonders whether or not she should tell William. At this time, Sandra calls to find William. It is now that Joanna realizes that they are a long married couple and they have a family together. Joanna and can't bring herself to reveal what she knows. Even though Joanna keeps this a secret for him, William does not realize that Jack is still in Sandra's mind.
