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.
