From director Romain Basset, and starring Catriona MacColl, we’ve landed first details on Fever, penned by Romain Basset and Karim Cheriguene (who’s also working on a script for an upcoming Xavier Gens projects!).
“Jessica has never dreamed in her life but has had regular nightmares of which the meaning has escaped her. This peculiarity has led her to conduct studies which specialized in psychophysiology of dreams and to follow a therapy with Sean, her mentor and boyfriend, to try and understand the origins of her nightmares.
Following the death of her maternal grandmother whom she scarcely knew, Jessica must return reluctantly to the family home. Upon her arrival, she discovers that her late grandmother is resting in the adjoining room to her own during the wake…
After a rough first night made restless by a strange nightmare in which she meets her dead grandmother, Jessica suddenly becomes ill. Stuck in her bed with a high fever, the young woman decides to use her lethargic state to experience lucid dreams and thus try to take control of her nightmares. Henceforth, on the advice of Sean, Jessica needs to breathe a little bit of ether when a crisis arises to sink deeper into the other world.
