Tom hasn’t slept for a very long time. Whilst normally shy, his insomnia has led him to totally withdraw within himself and cut himself off from other people. Tom exists in two worlds. In the waking world he is the quiet, socially awkward office worker, bullied by his boss Greg, and secretly longing after Poppy, the girl of his (nonexistent)dreams.

By night, whilst everyone else sleeps, Tom walks aimlessly around the deserted town. Alone he’s most comfortable; the quiet helps him think. Although recently Tom can’t hep but feel there’s someone else out there...

But things are beginning to crumble in Tom’s world. Poppy has announced that she is leaving, and worse for Tom and his OCD mania, his precious red cup has gone missing. Tom’s life is unravelling, his daytime and nighttime worlds are beginning to blur. Tom is losing his grip on reality and someone or something is messing with his head.

The UnDream is the dark, quiet story of a man fighting with his UnDreams...
