The sun is setting and the eyes are closing. Rocking from one green leaf to the next, the little monkey glides gently into sleep. But what happens next? Suddenly the world of dreams gets darker, more colorful and wild. Mysterious plants, creatures, and shapes line the trajectory through the night. SOMNI is a cinematic lullaby.
