Five of New York’s most innovative independent directors adapt each other’s dreams for the big screen in this ambitious omnibus film. Formally audacious and wildly unpredictable, this cinematic descent into the surreal ranges from the ominous to the absurd: a gym class is conducted from inside a volcano; the Grim Reaper hosts a chilling game show; one man’s risky quest changes a brainwashing tower signal; former prison inmates reflect on their first moments of freedom; and a mother-to-be realizes a beast is growing in her womb.
