The series follows Dream, also known as Morpheus, and others, who is one of the sevenEndless, a family of beings that areembodiments of natural forces and are believed to be older than any other supernatural being.

"Then youll be wondering, What the hell is this? By Episode 2, when youre encountering Gregory The Gargoyle in The Dreaming. If Episode 5 is about as horrifying and traumatic as it is, then youve got Episode 6, which is probably the most feel-good of all episodes."
