Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, people all over the world are reporting having what are now known as “pandemic dreams.” We sat down with Dr. Michael Grandner, the director of the Sleep and Health Clinic at the University of Arizona, who answers questions from four characters about where their dreams have taken them over the past year. In our fully animated story, we learn about the vocabulary of dreams and how they might be helping us to make sense of our new normal in ways that we are incapable of doing during our waking life.
