The Sandman Brigade tells the story of a young girl, Maja, who can’t fall asleep. She is visited by a band of outlandish characters that cajole her into working with them as they go about their nocturnal duties. When Maja wakes up in the morning, she seems confused. Was it real, or a dream? Whatever the answer, she can’t wait to go to bed to find out.
