Film Synopsis:
"Death can be dreadful and worthwhile, depending on where you
stand. In the Dead and the Dreaming, eight tales unravel deaths
secrets, as the characters unravel theirs. On a dark country road, a
hit man finds a reason. On the rivers edge, two white trash thugs
find the rhyme. While two men debate bullets over cancer, four
gunrunners debate death over prison. As one madman plays a lethal
game of chess, another falls for the photographer who stalks him.
Ranging from foreign language to silent film, The Dead and the
Dreaming throws different flowers at the coffin. Eight short films
tell a story with one message: Death is a mysterious creature;
teaching while it takes away."
