Elliot Bergeron has just finished university and is falling for a young woman. Elliot Bergeron is a disheartened thirty year-old elementary school teacher counting down the years to his pension. Elliot Bergeron’s life is wide open. Elliot Bergeron’s life is sealed shut. Elliot Bergeron has dreams of his future. Elliot Bergeron has dreams of his past. Elliot Bergeron is living two parts of his own life at the same time and doesn’t know who he is, what he controls, who he loves, what will happen next, or what happened before.
A Dream Apart is a surreal drama about love and tragedy with a comedic gloss. Like The Year We Finally Solved Everything, it defies simple genre classification.
