Dream Tale

I have never been so fond of dream stories. Unfortunately, in this eerie TV show, dream is a unavoidable scheme which we have to deal with. So, I'll comment it only because it has not been done yet. A child has bad dreams, nightmares that prevent him to sleep properly. And it appears that as he grows old, the nightmare he had several years ago pursues him. He is now a young man still imagining this evil man killing him with a knife. I have already seen this kind of topic, nothing new to me. But the young man's character is pretty well made and gripping in some moments. Will he be able to get rid of those nightmares? Are they only bad dreams, or on the contrary, are they based on reality, actual facts? I let you find out what it is... Not a bad episode, good piece of work.
