Johan Ehn

After a tumultuous relationship, Christian finds refuge in the spiritual movement The Source of Knowledge. But the undeniable sense of community he initially encounters, turns out to be conditional. Homosexuality is not compatible with the teachings, but there is “help” available. 

Christian is faced with an ultimatum and is sent to the magnificent Lake District in the north of England to find out what he is willing to sacrifice. There, he meets the charming Lee, who turns everything upside down.

The Sleeper is a poignant story, partially based on real events, about losing oneself in the longing for meaning and belonging.
