Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs

Jim is haunted by visions of his own death. Convinced he doesn’t have long to live, he sets out to find his son, Tom, and reconcile with him. Tom is forced to realise that his father tried to stay in touch all those years. He also learns of his father’s despair at not being able to prevent his mother’s death, even though Jim had visions that showed how she would die. Jim and Tom grow closer, but past conflicts re-emerge in the form of an old friend with an axe to grind. The visions become more and more menacing. Jim is terrified that Tom is in danger. When Tom disappears, Jim sets out to rescue him. This time his search leads him to a showdown that forces him to confront his past and finally understand what his visions were trying to tell him.
