Filmmaker Nik Sheehan delves into the unique life of artist Brion Gysin, who collaborated with his best friend and beat generation icon William S. Burroughs to create the Dream Machine, which was meant to liberate its users' minds. Interviews with pop culture figures such as Iggy Pop, Marianne Faithfull and DJ Spooky convey the potency of the dreamlike creative state achieved with the help of this light-based machine.
