Synopsis: ‘Sleep Dealer’ is a Sundance award-winning sci-fi thriller. Memo Cruz (Luis Fernando Peña) is a young man in near-future Mexico. When his family is a victim of a misguided drone attack he finds himself with no option but to head north, towards the U.S./Mexico border. But migrant workers cannot cross this new world border – it’s been sealed off. Instead, Memo ends up in a strange digital factory in Mexico where he connects his body to a robot in America.
