This documentary portrays the biographies of two women who slowly disappear behind the role of housewife until they snap and become aggressors. Two newspaper articles, ten years apart, two different women, the same wording. Up to the moment of the appearance in these newspapers, both women were invisible as individuals, concealed by their roles as wives and homemakers. It was only through acts of violence that, for a brief moment, did they claim visibility. THE SLEEPER revolves around the time before these acts took place.
