Inside Jesse, they are building something. Tormented by subdermal machines and disillusioned amid a flood of conspiracy theories, paranormal visions and traumatic events, Jesse tries to build normalcy and a purpose for herself in America. With an original electronic music score, War Dreamer explores the impact of new technology within the mental landscape of a soldier struggling for a cohesive reality, jumping between the past, the present, and the delusional without explanation or warning. When do both belief and fantasy become essential to survival?
Written by Leegrid Stevens who co-directs with Jacob Titus, the cast of seven includes Shawn Davis, E. James Ford, Sam Tilles, and E.B. Treadway, as well as Poppy Luch, Rowan Luch, and Ruby Titus, who are rotating in the role of young Alex.
