Compare with "Metro" , Feb 12, 2011 here. Do not confuse with "Daydream Nation", Jan. 23, 2014.
Note (Jan 28): It looks like I typed the verb "take" and "tale" in the post title, but one could "bitcoin" a verb "tale" to mean "to tell a story that helps a person escape his own reality". So maybe it makes sense. My own take on this situation is sci-fi -- the person doesn't recognize his situation because he's actually been abducted and taken to another world (or the afterlife). That could be interesting. Or use the world "tail" to mean to follow the person, out of skid row. In this movie, that doesn't happen either. I wish it did.
