Story of a Sleeping Man follows Bill Mitty, a young writer caught somewhere between imagination and vision, attempting to find inspiration while working his day job as a patient care facilitator.
Overworked and overtired, Bill’s creative apparitions shadow him through the hospital. His characters come to life, then quickly fade back into his consciousness as he goes about his day.
Sneaking around the hospital to write in his notebook, he comes across a patient in a room he has never visited. A soldier wounded in the war lies stationary in the hospital bed and begins to tell Bill a story about love, war, grief and understanding: his story.
Bill writes it down, hoping for a revelation to come to him.
