Preceded by the music video STORIES I CREATE IN MY HEAD.

Completely overwhelmed when her boyfriend Julian proposes to her, Marie escapes to the countryside in order to collect her thoughts. But instead of finding peace, she is blindsided by her personified thoughts: her "thought people". Be it her mother listing baby names, a melancholic poetry-composing lady in a sari, or her ex-boyfriend climbing from trees - everyone is talking to her incessantly.

Things get really complicated when Julian shows up -with his own "thought people" in tow. A surrealistic story that coherently and humorously explores the resilience of a relationship and the pursuit of the true self.
