What if your sleep is so extreme that it disrupts your life by day? The film starts off as a traditional documentary, but gradually changes into a titillating mosaic of radical sleeping experiences.

Only in a state of sleep, by forgetting and dreaming, you can escape the logic of daily life. But what if your sleep is so extreme that it disrupts your life during the day? This documentary looks for the beauty and cruelty of our dormant state. Various people talk about their sleeping problems, ranging from a wakeful existence to apocalyptic nightmares. The dream gets the best of reality, as the film gradually changes into a feverish, titillating mosaic of radical sleeping experiences.
