After a mysterious synaptic connection beyond scientific explanation, two women, Clara and Gio establish a dreamlike relationship that leads them to share their deepest dreams and hidden desires during a coma. Two strangers who have never met in reality are finally given the opportunity that they, subconsciously, have always craved: to love another woman. A journey through their extraordinary dates, scattered throughout the dream world, will end in one final and significant encounter, where the two women will have to decide between waking up and going on with their individual lives or remain eternally in their dream state, together. Sinápica is a film that explores the boundaries between reality and dream. It is a love story that takes place in an unconventional space, the depths of the unconscious.
