A famously intuitive NYPD detective, when Taka Matsuyama isn’t working cases, he is taking care of his catatonic mother Kumiko. When Taka begins investigating a new cult, he soon starts having strange and vivid dreams. Hoping for answers, Taka begins searching for members of the cult -- only to have them find him first.

The cult is a group of powerful dreamers who teach Taka that he has the ability to enter the dreams of others. With their help, Taka reunites in the dream world with his mother who reveals that she shares his talent and has exiled herself to the dream world where she and the cult need his help finding a young boy whose dream power they wish to harness.

Eventually Taka meets fellow dreamers Tess and Burton, from whom he learns that the boy the cult seeks is none other than Tess’s missing son, James. He also strikes up a romance with Tess’s sister, Sabine. Ultimately, Taka turns on his mother and the cult and helps reunite James with Tess.

Now Taka is eager to settle into a normal dream-free life with Sabine. But will another one of his intuitions get in the way of that?

Will Yun Lee stars as Taka, an intuitive NYPD Detective, whose leap-of-faith insights put him on the trail of an obscure, dream-obsessed cult.
