This impressionistic short film, featuring clips from songs from DSTNCE's album Hypnos, s is Bradley Alexander's imaginative take on the journey of a mind when the body is gripped by sleep paralysis.

The film was inspired by the experiences of DSTNCE's Melanie DeJesus with sleep paralysis - the state when during waking up or falling asleep, a person is aware but unable to move or speak. During an episode, the person may hallucinate, seeing shadowy figures or imagining sounds, like humming, hissing, and static noises. 

Alexander incorporates those elements into his film where a woman (Minji Money) is caught in a state of sleep paralysis, and Through this fever dream she is able to confront a past trauma that she has tried to suppress.
