Leonard Grey is the caretaker of the Jericho Mansions. He has to maintain the building in good condition while Lily Melnick, the owner, is desperately looking for a motive to sack him. Leonard, who never leaves the building, suffers from phobias. For several days now, he also has a recurrent dream about a man wandering in the Spanish desert after having been knocked out.

When one of the tenants is murdered, Lily Melnick accuses Leonard of the murder but the police doesn't see why he would have done such a thing. Little by little, Leonard understands that his subconscious tries to tell him something important through the dreams he makes. But he can't see or, rather, remember what.
