Here, three fantastic talents come together to create a literal DREAM SCENARIO: after SICK OF MYSELF, Kristoffer Borgli once again aims at the neurotic excesses of our media-consuming society and, with Ari Aster as co-producer, delivers a biting satire and a perfect fit for Nicolas Cage's perhaps best per- formance to date.
Paul doesn't know what's happening to him. At first it's just his daughter who has surreal dreams about him. But then, inexplicably, more and more people start getting visions of him at night, even complete strangers! Until now, the pale family father and not very witty college professor has never been in the centre of attention or cool. But now he is suddenly being praised as the "hottest man in the world" and the media is all about the new internet star everyone is dreaming of. However, as the collective night-time episodes become increasingly nightmarish, the general mood changes and Paul is overwhelmed by a shitstorm of gigantic proportions.
