For her twentieth birthday, Svetlana receives an unforgettable present: her beloved but depressed brother throws himself out of a window. Since then, she’s haunted by eerily realistic nightmares. Svetlana starts to wonder if depression runs in the family, as her mother also met a tragic end. When she goes through her late brother’s belongings, she discovers that he was obsessed by a sect that wants to turn nightmares into reality. Out of desperation, she turns to the institute of somnology where they experiment with lucid collective dreaming to free people of their fears. Together with three other patients, they are put to sleep. But instead of redemption, they are haunted by torture and demons. Together they desperately search for a way out… This audiovisual nightmare which would even keep Freddie Krueger from sleeping, comes from the producers that brought us THE BRIDE (BIFFF 2017). Pavel Sidorov delivers a feature debut that fulfills all our expectations and submerges us in an atmosphere of surreal terror. Russian genre cinema has become a certitude at the BIFFF and QUIET COMES THE DAWN proves this once again.
