Dance film in which a chore­o­g­ra­pher in the moment between wake­ful­ness and sleep (hypn­a­gogia) finally gets his dream dance.
Hypn­a­gogia is the tran­si­tional state between wake­ful­ness and sleep, a moment when dream and reality merge. Chore­o­g­ra­pher Muhanad Rasheed plays the leading role, as the chore­o­g­ra­pher of a group of dancers who don’t seem to under­stand his direc­tions. After a rehearsal, in which every­body dances in black against a white back­ground, he takes a stroll in nature, and when he falls asleep he gets his dream dance.
