We are presented with the perspective of Philippe, a young man suffering from sleep paralysis. We will follow him throughout a night, allowing us to experience what he goes through every evening through his eyes. Parasomnia playfully deconstructs the conventions of fiction, both in substance and form, in order to create an experimental adventure within the uncanny valley, which, like its subject, is so close to being recognizable and yet so far away.
