"What happens while she sleeps..."
Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy (Emily Browning) is a young university student who takes a job as a ‘sleeping beauty’. In the Sleeping Beauty Chamber old men seek an erotic experience that requires Lucy’s absolute submission. This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep.
