The Soldier Dreams is a dark comedy about life, death and grief. It is the story of a young man's life coming to a close, and the impact it has on his family.

David, the dying man, is haunted by the memory of an idyllic romantic encounter with a German medical student, while his family sits by, trying to cope with the loss. As he lays dying, his family gathers around his bed trying to understand his delirious utterances.

While the living struggle to find the meaning in his dying words, the audience is taken inside the man's imagination to recapture significant moments in his life.
