Your plant apparently didn't take well to the change, but it's hard to say from here whether it's dying. I would give it a diluted, light dose of houseplant food and maybe a bit more warmth, if possible. You can summer it outdoors if it's warmer outside.

If any of the leaves look healthy, you can propagate a new plant.
