Imagine being so afraid to sleep that you can’t even stay in your own home. This is Sarah at the start of Come True. A senior in high school, she wakes up in a sleeping bag on a playground in the films first scene.
Sarah is terrified, and rightly so. Her dreams are long, slow, camera movements through caves and hallways, past mountains and surreal sculptures, and they all inevitably lead to a dark figure with glowing white eyes.
Frustrated and terrified, she eventually joins a sleep study to try to figure out what is going on, and this is where things take a slight twist, we soon find out that the scientists conducting the study are not only studying dreams, they have the technology to see them.
