Dreams: horror, traumatic, stressful… Feelings that I experience through the nightmare are the visual images that trigger associations in viewers, tell a story and try to initiate reflection and subconsciously recall traumatic feelings that are physically marked and personalized. The film is a kind of experiment with the atmosphere of tension and paranoia in the individual awakens a feeling that they suffer mentally and physically in a horizontal position.
