Kent, who does not dream, is skeptical of those who do.
At the end of a long relationship, and desperate for new
friends, he seeks the advice of Ori, his mentor. Ori blames
Kent's unhappiness on Kent's denial of his true nature.
He tries to guide Kent by introducing him to three people
who are friends and lucid dreamers.
The dreamers, Ron, Charlene, and Jean, literally appear
in each other's dreams, and share the same experiences in
them. While Kent is entertained by their stories, he
interprets the dreams as thinly disguised confessions
and requests for help.
Kent is in a position to help each of them, and does so
willingly: He gives Ron, a struggling futures broker,
five million dollars to trade; Charlene desires a political
appointment. Kent throws a party for the Mayor, so they can
meet; Jean needs love and support. They fall in love and he
offers to marry her.
One by one, the dreamers lose contact with reality and turn
on Kent: When Kent's account vanishes, Ron believes he is
being framed for money laundering; Charlene is humiliated
by the Mayor when he denies ever meeting her; Jean feels
betrayed when Kent stands her up on the eve of a dinner with
Ori explains that he and Kent are a different breed from the
three friends. They should tolerate people like that, but never
truly accept them as equals.
Kent ignores Ori's advice, and tries to reconcile, with disastrous
results. After each one entirely rejects Kent, Ron commits suicide
in front of him, stating "I know what you are".
As Ron dies, Charlene and Jean wake up in horror.
Upon reflection, Kent realizes that Ori was right all along.
