Sleep Come Free Me

1998 | Bisexual / Representation | 19m | USA
Directors: Laurie Schmidt

Natalie, a disenchanted office worker, lives in the space between dreams and reality. When her dream life overlaps with reality, her dull 9-5 existence is flooded with overwhelming and unexpected desire, and Natalie is forced to sink or swim. The comedic and intelligent Sleep Come Free Me brims with discord, lust and symbolic imagery.
