The word Trance comes from the Latin transīre: to transit, to transport oneself. The experiences known as "falling into trance" or "going into trance" refer to a psychological mechanism in which a person abandons himself or herself to certain external or internal conditions and experiences an altered state of consciousness. It is also a path of spiritual enlightenment for the soul, a kind of purification.
Five friends meet at Alberto's house, who takes the initiative to invite Paula, Pau, Yuri and Ángela. Most of them have known each other for a long time and have a lot of purchasing power, but they don't know that there is something else that keeps them together. After several months, they will have a night meeting where the tensions and the atmosphere will lead to a reveal of secrets and their consequences: a critical moment where all the characters will pass through this altered and involuntary state of consciousness.
Trance is also known for being a dissociative disorder caused by different traumas that involve the breakdown of mental processes such as memory, identity or consciousness, and it is this dissociation that our characters will experience on this journey.
Are you coming to experience it with them?
