Full Synopsis

Dreams become the most frightening reality of all for a young woman whose terrifying family secrets come to light in the dead of night…

Sarah Zarn (Katy Boyer, White Dwarf) is a young nurse starting out on her own. When she’s forced to vacate her apartment, she finds herself back home, and once again in the middle of bitter and unresolved tensions between her mother, Lily (Emmy nominee Shelley Fabares, Coach), and her father, Don (Gerald McRaney, Simon & Simon). For Sarah, the only moments of peace are with Paul (Joel Bissonnette, Fight Club), her musician boyfriend, and her younger brother, Steven (Jeremy Renner, A Friend’s Betrayal). But when night comes, so do Sarah’s childhood nightmares... and suddenly one of them comes true. Lily appears to have vanished with no word of where she’s gone.

Then Sarah receives a postcard from her mother insisting that she’s fine. The words offer little to ease Sarah’s suspicions, and her prescient nightmares only confirm them. So does her mother’s diary. Within its pages are implications that her parents’ relationship was more violent than she imagined and suggestions that Lilly was having an affair with Paul. However, in Sarah’s dreams is where the most unsettling evidence of all lies: that Lily met with foul play. Now, night after night, Sarah edges closer to unveiling the truth, and closer still to a killer who’s turning her life into a waking nightmare.

Hold on tight for an exercise in chilling psychological suspense as A Nightmare Comes True explores the terrifying reality that only the darkest dreams can reveal.
