Logline

Evil lurks within Lily's nightmares and creeps into the physical realm. She must defeat it to save the woman she loves.

Synopsis

Inspired by 1920’s German existential film, this contemporary take on Sleeping beauty follows Lily as she fights for control of her demons in order to save her lover from eternal slumber. While asleep in bed, Lily becomes trapped in a nightmare. Haunting figures manipulate her in a grotesque dance that transfers into the physical realm, causing Lily to sleepwalk to the bank of an icy river. The nightmare dance intensifies as she is pulled closer to her doom. Standing in the icy water the face of her lover appears in a heart upon her chest, giving her the strength she needs to defeat the demons, wake up, and throw herself from the river. Now free, Lily searches the forest for the woman she loves, finding her at last in a clearing. A kiss is all it takes.
