Ursula K. Le Guin's Science Fiction Masterpiece

For George Orr, sleep is not a respite. For Dr. William Haber, dreams are tools. For sci-fi fans, the wait is over.

Praised as "rare and powerful" by The New York Times , Ursula K. Le Guin's The Lathe Of Heave is one of the most celebrated science fiction novels ever written. This innovative adaptation -- never before released on DVD -- brings the towering vision of Le Guin's masterpiece to life.

George Orr is haunted by dreams that become reality. In a world where pollution has destroyed the ice caps and plagues rage unchecked, a psychiatrist sees Orr's power as a way for humanity to escape it's bleak fate. But as each attempt to direct Orr's dreaming ends in failure, the doctor's obsession with playing God grows stronger.

Bruce Davison ( X-Men, Six Degrees Of Separation, Crimes of Passion ) stars in this chilling fable of power uncontrolled and uncontrollable.
