A Magician from the world of dreams gains power through a 'moonstone
pendant' to control Odette's imagination as she sleeps. Beginning
with a tranquil lake scene that slowly transforms into a nightmare,
Odette battles with the darker side of her subconscious mind to
break the Magician's spell.
|A film of contrast between reality versus illusion,
that poses the question, "what does it mean to be awake?"
