Open is a magic act that reveals itself to be a resurrection. A woman called The Magician presents a myriad of tricks for our entertainment, while attempting the impossible: to save the life of her partner, Jenny. Is our faith in her illusions enough to rewrite the past? The clock is ticking, the show must go on, and we mustn't look away. Amazing as it may seem, this Magician’s act may be our last hope against a world filled with intolerance and hate.
