Twelve o'clock noon. An ordinary scene, an ordinary city. Lunchtime for thousands of ordinary people. To most of them, this hour will be a rest, a pleasant break in a day's routine. To most, but not all. To Edward Hall, time is an enemy, and the hour to come is a matter of life and death.

I am surprised to not see a comment on this episode, hence mine. The episode deals with the elusive boundary between sleep and being awake, aiming to once again stir our perceptions and notions of reality. (Mind you, I shouldn't say "once again", since this is only episode nine.) A man finds himself at the psychiatrist's office with a reoccurring dream of a woman named Maya chasing him. She pushes on the limits of his fragile heart, and, should he fall asleep one last time, he will not survive the roller coaster. He's forced himself to stay awake for 90 hours before visiting the doctor...I won't give away the ending for you.
