Enter a world beyond your wildest imagination, where anything can happen.
There’s a secret government agency for just about any nightmare scenario, and in Dreamscape, that’s just what the shady branch of big gov is researching: dreams and how to invade them. Using a group of psychics and some fancy equipment, the secret project hopes to gain a greater understanding of our subconscious (unconscious?) minds. But when an experiment goes wrong and a subject dies in his sleep, Alex, one of the psychics, begins to suspect the program isn’t all what it seems. When the President of the United States needs some help with his nuclear holocaust nightmares, it’s up to Alex to make sure the President makes it out alive.
