Plot: Kristy McNichol plays Kathy Gardner, a jazz flutist who has recently moved into New York City. Late one night she is attacked in her apartment by a would-be rapist whom she fatally stabs him in the back. Nightly revisited by a recurring dream of the incident, McNichol meets Michael Hansen (Ben Masters), a dream-researcher who promises to help her. McNicholís nightmarish evenings, however, only get worse. Masters claims that the actions in a dream state can be channeled into real but controlled actions, but his research isnít full-proof and he needs Kathy to step in as his guinea pig. The film explores the fascinating question that is posed when the dream state and the waking state are confused and intermingled. Bergmanís longtime cinematographer Sven Nykvist provides a beautiful visual context to the scientific hypothesis.
