Jessica has never dreamed in her life but has had regular nightmares, the meaning of which escaped her. This peculiarity has led her to conduct studies specializing in the psychophysiology of dreams and to follow a therapy with Sean, her mentor and boyfriend, to try and understand the origins of her nightmares.
Following the death of her maternal grandmother whom she scarcely knew, Jessica must return reluctantly to the family home. Upon her arrival, she discovers that her late grandmother is resting in the adjoining room to her own during the wake. After a rough first night made restless by a strange nightmare in which she meets her dead grandmother, Jessica suddenly becomes ill. Stuck in her bed with a high fever, the young woman decides to use her lethargic state to experience lucid dreams and thus to try and take control of her nightmares. Henceforth, on the advice of Sean, Jessica needs to breathe a little bit of ether when a crisis arises to sink deeper into the other world.
Jessica will begin to evolve in a nightmarish world, and gradually developing capabilities as a lucid dreamer, she will investigate to discover the evil that gnaws her and haunts the family house…
