Fourteen-year-old Layla Bali is tormented by nightmares that bleed into her waking life. When she loses her protective dreamcatcher necklace in a murky pond, she unwittingly opens a portal where Death reigns supreme. With the help of Teddy, an enigmatic rocker who has similar dreams, they enter a thrilling realm where nightmares come to life. As they journey through this mysterious world of duality, they come face to face with sinister doppelgangers, confront their deepest fears in a ghostly hospital, and battle soul-sucking creatures in an eerie graveyard. Together, they discover inner strengths and vulnerabilities, and a bond that transcends reality. As they fight to save themselves and each other, Layla and Teddy will uncover truths that challenge everything they thought they knew about themselves and the world around them.

Coming Soon!
