Mind-bending love story
‘Bliss’ is a mind-bending love story that follows the recently divorced Greg whose life is falling apart and the enchanting Isabel, a woman who lives on the streets and is convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is not real. She believes they are living in an ugly, harsh world simulation inside of the beautiful, peaceful “real” world of bliss. Doubtful at first, Greg eventually discovers there may be some truth to Isabel’s wild conspiracy theory. What follows is the two getting too close to each other, maybe even too close for comfort resulting in an ending that we can’t wait to unfold in front of us.
The movie is an escape from reality
Bliss will take you to another world where it’s hard to find what’s real and what’s not. Watching the lines being blurred between a dream and a reality and experience what the characters go through is sure going to be fascinating. With the cinematic visuals and emotions captured beautifully, the viewer is in for a treat as they get to enjoy the best of both worlds. So sit back and relax, for you’re in bliss.
