Summary
Lucy is a university student possessed by radical passivity, letting coin tosses decide random sexual encounters and enduring her menial jobs with patience. After answering an ad for a lingerie waitress, Lucy is secretly initiated into the job of a Sleeping Beauty, for which she is sedated and given in absolute submission to her clients. As this unnerving experience bleeds into her daily life, Lucy develops the courage to break the spell and discover what happens to her while she sleeps.
