Holly seems to have it all: two kids, a nice house, a good job as a teacher, and a husband with an upwardly mobile career. But there are troubling signs that all is not right in her world thanks to a combination of insomnia and the disturbing dreams that result from the medication she takes for it. But are they even dreams, and what is it that finally sends her spiraling out of control? Both a stellar portrait of depression and a horrific drama, this haunting update on a classical tragedy comes from a new writer/director who was raised on the films of Polanski, Hitchcock and Bergman.
