What if your sleep is so intense it disrupts your daytime life? The film starts as a traditional documentary, but gradually changes into a feverish, titillating mosaic of radical sleeping experiences.

Only in a sleep state, by forgetting and dreaming, you can escape the logic of daily life. But what if your sleep is so intense it disrupts your life during the day? This documentary explores the beauty as well as cruelty of our sleep mode. Various people tell about their sleeping problems, varying from an insomniac life to apocalyptic nightmares. The logic of the dream trounces reality, as the film gradually changes into a feverish, titillating mosaic of radical sleeping experiences.
