(Working Plot)A brilliant grad student and researcher named Jason Tonly has received funding from the Navy to conduct research to develop a way for soldiers to require less sleep. But hopeful Lyenne Smith has unwittingly accepted an invitation to assist in an experiment that was never sanctioned by the Navi or gov.
The plot of the 5min Campus MovieFest version differs from the main version; Jason Tonley is instead the leader of a group of brilliant university students conducting their own secret research into controlling dream experiences. while having lunch with Sara, Jason recieves a call from Ryn saying that Freddy had gone into the dream world alone and that she had lost contact with him, consequently putting Freddy into a comatose state. Sarah immediately concocts a plan to rescue him, but Jason argues with her about the risks and the odds of being able to find him. He also expresses his anger at Freddy for putting their research at risk. Sarah ignores Jason and sets off to save Freddy saying she would go into the dream world alone to get him out. Jason relunctantly follows to reduce the risk of her becoming trapped as well.
