"Alli challenges the viewer to take a seemingly benign concept – the act of dreaming – and dissect its intellectual and emotional aspects until it reaches a state of raw physicality. The individual members of this endeavor slowly move from the unique expressions of their respective nocturnal dreams to an interconnecting ritual where the protocol of sleep-induced dreams blend into a wider dream-fueled community." - Phil Hall, filmthreat.com
