Lucy is a University student who is struggling to pay her rent. When she's not working in an office, she juggles a science experiment that she is being paid to take part in. Her roommates have all but given up on her; Lucy's only real friend is Birdman, who is slowly dying from alcohol poisoning.
When Lucy sees an advert in the University paper for a 'Silver Service Waitress' she applies, seeing it as an opportunity to earn some more money on top of her other jobs and her studies. Lucy is invited for an interview and meets Clara, who wastes no time in telling Lucy exactly what the job entails.
Lucy is a 'Sleeping Beauty'. She is put into a deep sleep for several hours, during which time men can do whatever they like to her, as long as it's not penetrative. Lucy takes the job but before too long her Sleeping Beauty duties begin to seep into her everyday life. Paranoid, she begins the difficult task of discovering what really happens to her body when she is asleep.
