What if a drug existed that- when ingested- could warp your consciousness into another dimension? What if this dimension were a reality of existence where you could walk, talk, live and learn from a peaceful foreign form of intelligent life? What if life among these beings were so much greater than your life back on dystopian Earth that you wanted to stay and live with them forever? What if the only key through their gate of eternity were suicide?
