Synopsis


"Knock, knock

Knock at the door

The ominous menacing creak of the floor

You'll scratch and you'll scratch till you're bloody and raw

The Sandman's coming to get you."

Nat, a talented fashion designer, is stalked by the figure of the Sandman, a character from her childhood mysteriously connected to her parent's death.
