But as the clues mount, Dr. Riaz begins to doubt her sanity. And as the physical toll of Taylor's fits escalate and her internal organs begin to breakdown, she discovers the only way to solve the riddle is from inside an episode.
Can Taylor discover the key to the illness that plagues her in time to save her life and build a future worth living?
