Logline

Cities have dreams, and a middle-aged divorcee with a disappointing life wanders into the Dream of Coney Island one day. It's fun at first, but then she starts slowly changing into the person she is in the Dream, and the situation gets MUCH worse when she wanders into the Nightmare.

Synopsis

Sarah Brannigan's life has fallen to pieces at the age of forty-five. To escape it all, she walks the streets of New York City, seeking out the hidden wonders of the City. Then one day, she falls asleep on a boardwalk bench after a long walk in the hot sun. When she wakes up, she is in the Dream of Coney Island, which she mistakes for her own dream. The dream contains everything she ever wished for - youth, beauty, adventure, romance - and she revisits it again and again. But soon the dream begins to take over as she's trapped in her dream-form even in the real world. Worse, one day she wanders into the Nightmare of Coney Island and is nearly killed. After that, she must choose to let go of her old life and become an agent of Dream.
