Synopsis: The PKG (Popabawa Kanashibari Guild) have consistently had successful alumni specializing in nightmares, but none as successful as Abdelaziz Subaghra or Donnie Krasznai, both of whom practice very different forms. The former friends no longer speak but work in parallel circles. Abdelaziz is very much to himself, eliminating the outside world as he follows his choices beneath the city. Donnie on the other hand flaunts his talents and generates sizeable profits from his products’ sales.
Their lives remain distant until Abdelaziz is accused of tampering with Donnie’s nefarious services and forcing Donnie’s tame style of nightmare to go a step too far.
Format: Feature film
