The Orange Orange

Natasha Maidoff. The Orange Orange, 1999–2001.

A young woman gets locked out of her house and then hit over the head by an orange. She then follows it into a dream world where she asks questions about her identity while looking for her "key." While she's locked out, circus characters appear from hidden places within her home, and have a party. She keeps following the orange until she reaches a place inside herself that's been there all along, and then, her door opens.
