Sleeper tells the story of Rosko (28), a courier driver, whose world has become a disjointed collection of random moments. His dreams repeat scenes of ordinariness and he finds himself snapping in and out of consciousness at the wheel of his van.

The short film produced by Liz Fay, directed by Andrew Milner and written by Phil Jeng Kane was funded by ScreenWest , FilmEx grant in 2004. It is Milner’s second short film.
