In this sci-fi thriller, Alex Garner (Dennis Quaid), a young, extremely gifted psychic, is taught by a doctor (Max von Sydow) to actually enter other peoples' dreams, and even participate in them. Another psychic is being groomed to enter the troubled dreams of the President of the United States, with intentions not quite so benevolent. Christopher Plummer and Kate Capshaw also star.
A university dream research clinic is exploring "dreamlinking", a method by which conscious people can insert themselves into others' dreams. The research director recruits washed-up psychic Alex Garland for his experiments, and Alex proves a natural for dream manipulation. But even though the doctor overseeing the research has only the best intentions, someone else believes that dreamlinking can be the ultimate weapon... and he's determined to recruit Alex for his own evil ends.
