A dreamer's guide to reality is the first part of a short stories collection that is focused on the break between reality and fiction in the mind of a young person. Built as a mesmerizing mix of real life action, character memories and dreams, it shows the readers that the simplest way for the mind to defend itself is by sheltering itself inside it, building up, at the same time, a defense wall that not even the person can overpass.
Gregory is fighting with his inner demons after having gone through several traumatic incidents. These inner demons are being fought by his mind through supporting his efforts in gathering knowledge, eliminating superstitions and beliefs and focusing simply on facts and figures. Trying to pull himself together, we see Gregory going through different dreams and memories, concentrating his reality on things that wouldn't hurt him or make him vulnerable to attacks from both outside and inside.
Starting off as a 30 years man living in the suburbs, Gregory gets startled by a recurring dream that shows him as an old man who wasn't capable of moving past his childhood dramas. Swinging back and forward between a damaged childhood and a movie like adult life, Gregory finds out that there is something strange in his progression in life. Bits and pieces are missing and he must find out why.
Join Gregory on a path to self knowledge and see what is the solution.
