Summary

Sleep

Once upon a time, there was a house in the woods where something terrible happened …

Marlene is plagued by a recurring nightmare set in a hotel in the forest. When she discovers a newspaper advertisement for precisely this hotel, Marlene decides to face her fear. Against her daughter Mona’s advice, she drives to this idyllically situated place, only to find her fears confirmed. Shocked by the realisation that her dreams are apparently connected to three suicides, she falls into a stupor, an extreme mental and motor paralysis. Mona wants to find out what happened. During her investigation, she meets the friendly hotel owner Otto and his oddly dismissive wife Lore. Do the couple have something to hide? During her first night at the hotel, Mona is also shaken by a nightmare in which an unknown woman appears before her. This dream is the key to a dark secret that has something to do with the hotel and her own family history. For Mona, a roller-coaster ride into the abyss begins, in a film which plays with fairy-tale elements and blurs the boundaries between dream and reality.
