A millionaire industrialist suffers from amnesia following an auto accident. Fearing he will expire from his injuries, his greedy relatives try to restore his memory of his secret Swiss bank account number. In the spirit of Buñuel, THE GARDEN OF DELIGHTS is a bountiful mix of humor, daydreams and illusion.
