Short Film Profile

The Man Who Slept

A young woman is married to a man who is constantly sleeping. Having him near gives her a feeling of security and reassurance. She is a prisoner to her solitude and refuses to admit that the sleeping body is nothing more than a memory, a reminder of someone she once loved, a sleeping ghost. When she unexpectedly meets an alluring street entertainer, she realizes to what extent her state of denial has become pervasive and oppressive.
