Life is a Dream is an adaptation of the Spanish Golden Age classic by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Set in a dystopian future where countries have become corporations and medieval morality promises stability in a volatile world, it tells the story of Segismundo, heir of Polonia, who has been confined from birth in a virtual reality by his father, Basilio. While top executives Astolfo and Estrella compete to take over the company, Basilio devises a test to see if Segismundo will actually be the devastating and cruel ruler the stars foretold. And a young woman from a neighboring company arrives seeking vengeance and steps into the middle of a dangerous political secret. Life is a Dream is a beautifully told story that examines reality, fate, and free will.
