SLEEP DEALER is a Sundance award-winning sci-fi thriller packed with stunning visuals, strong social and political themes, and is being hailed by audiences and critics alike as "impressive, eye-opening…a timely message, deftly delivered… like Blade Runner and other big-brained sci-fi flicks, it’s about ideas..." (Wired)
Memo Cruz (Luis Fernando Peña) is a young man in near-future Mexico. When his family is victim of a misguided drone attack he finds himself with no option but to head north, towards the U.S./Mexico border. But migrant workers cannot cross this new world border – it's been sealed off. Instead, Memo ends up in a strange digital factory in Mexico where he connects his body to a robot in America.
Memo's search for a better future leads him to love, loss, and a confrontation with a mysterious figure from his past.
