There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep. It is a place called the Dreaming. This is where the Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), shapes our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend his mistakes during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes and meeting new entities, both cosmic and human, along the way.
