Ellie occasionally sees her mother's ghost in mirrors. She then decides to move to London to study at the London College of Fashion but has trouble fitting in. Unhappy in the hall of residence, she moves into a studio. At that point she starts to have vivid dreams about a Soho nightclub in the 1960's. Is her waking life in contrast to the supposed reality of her dreams?
