There are those who remember their dreams too well.
Kent, a realist who does not dream, is skeptical
of those who do. At the end of a long relationship,
and desperate for new friends, he seeks the advice
of Ori, his mentor. Ori thinks Kent has an identity
problem, and sets him up with three people who
happen to be lucid dreamers.
As Kent befriends them, his motives are questioned.
Ori warns him that they are a different breed, and
not to get too involved. Kent ignores Ori's advice,
until his new friend shoots him stating,
"I know what you are".
COMMENTS/ Target Audience:
This intelligent and original story is a treat for those
seeking answers to what they experience in dreams.
It is packed with rich dialogue and multi-layered meanings
which become clear on repeated viewings.
It has main characters who are gay, and some who only
appear to be. In keeping with a balanced view of the world,
there's hetero themes as well. Something for everyone, and
a question which takes 90 minutes to be answered!
