Urusula K. LeGuin's 1971 novel of reality reshaped is one of the acknowledged classics of science fiction. Now, the visionary tale comes alive in a state- of-the-art production starring James Caan, Lukas Haas, Lisa Bonet and David Strathairn. For George Orr, the saying that "dreams come true" is terrifyingly accurate--his nighttime visions reshape reality. After drugging himself in an attempt to keep from dreaming, Orr is arrested and ordered to seek psychiatric treatment for his "delusions." But when his doctor realizes that Orr's power is real, he starts to manipulate Orr's dreams, with disastrous consequences. A&E Home Video is proud to present this stirring adaptation of the story The New York Times called "a rare and powerful synthesis of poetry and science, reason and emotion.
Ursula K. LeGuine, the acknowledged grande dame of science fiction, wrote the chilling cautionary tale upon which this mind-bending adaptation is based.

When a zealous psychiatrist attempts to exploit Orr's "gift" in order to save humanity, the results are catastrophic. The New York Times considers this provocative film "a rare and powerful synthesis of poetry and science, reason and emotion." 100 min.
