In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare. One woman, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Abandoned and left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world.

Unraveling the tumultuous, decades-spanning story of the Dolan family’s friends, lovers and adversaries, DOUBLE FEATURE is about letting go of everything --- regret, resentment, ambition, dignity, moving pictures, the dead --- and taking it again from the top.
