New York, 2019. Dominique, a 40-year-old married white woman, is a successful working mother. After reading a play, she decides to take up an instrument she used to play when she was young. And realizes she never wanted to live her life. New York, 1934. Dominic, a 20-year-old gay immigrant, is a promising composer. After having a dream, he starts writing a fugue, and feels like he is supposed to live someone else's life. Just like in a fugue, a counterpoint compositional technic where an original theme is presented followed by a variation until they merge into one, the two stories told in Real become intertwined to a point where the viewer can't discern which one is which. Neither can Dominic and Dominique.
