“The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.” –Sigmund Freud

 An unscientific study of what happens when two people are hypnotized leading into an exhilarating journey into the unconscious mind (the repository for fears, desires, aggression, dreams) where
all the images, sounds and music are from found footage.
