The word "illusion," known in Sanskrit as "maya," has multiple meanings, which are all centered on the idea that we do not experience the environment itself -- but rather a projection of it, created by us.

Similar to the definition, the film Illusion, also has multiple meanings in accordance with the viewer's eye. So, we the filmmakers have created multiple synopses of the film, based on how you, the viewer, would like to experience it.

If you would like to experience Illusion as a metaphor, read this synopsis:

Laura is a willing, albeit hesitant, participant in this game we call "life." When she meets Mark, the love of her life, she is instantly attracted to him and intrigued by his perspective of the world, different than how she was ever taught to think. While Mark is whole and present, a man who is able to live in the moment, Laura in contrast is: fragile and influenced by her past, living mostly in the illusions she creates in her own mind. Faced with everything she has ever wanted, Laura experiences the doubts and the fear that come with the gift of true love. Through Mark's unwavering presence, Laura gets to experience the rollercoaster of her mind from the highest highs to the lowest lows that cause her to fall from grace into the depths of our deepest human fears.

Until Laura finally understands that these highs and lows are simply her mind, creating an illusion, she will continue to go within the circles of her own habits. Can she finally change this pattern and learn to live free of doubts and fears?
