Dream of Electric Sheep? as only award-winning director Jaime Robledo (Stoneface,
Watson) could imagine it.

Prepare yourself for a delicious love story for the new millennium.

his wife in the face? Or was it a dream gone horribly wrong?

nonexistent God to solid gold dancing. Will the revelation that life is indeed
