She flashes back to her past.Where two kids were sleeping in a room, a boy and a girl.That girl was Alice while other was her younger brother who has also sleep disorders.And the same night, he behaves strangely. 


His attitude reveals that he is  horrified. That kid is dead at that night.Thinking him, Alice is mostly depressed. She blames herself of not saving the lfe of her brother.Alice believes on all these supernatural happenings. and she wanted to  know that why and what is happening with this family.Moreover, what had happened with her brother at that night. Contrarily, that family is shown in trouble.Because only Sara was taking care of her kids after the capturing of Charlie. Then a weird happening occurs  with them at the same night.Coming into consciousness, Sara notices her younger daughter Emile who had killed her dog with the same scissors.And Daniel has also been paralyzed. Alice is worried about that family and wants to help them.


First of all, Charlie is released by her. They  find no logical evidence for these incidents. It is all supernaturalism.They think to visit such a person who is aware about these things. Then instantly, Cam comes in Alice's mind.Who was calling them demon. They go to meet Cam.They know, it did not happen with Cam but with his grandfather.Now he was grown old. His name was Amado. He tells  to Charlie and Alice that the responsible of all these happening is no one but Timon.And he will continue to act untill he takes the life of Daniel. It means, daniel life was at risk.Amado has also been a victim. But he was survived because another person came to end instead of him.Even after that, demon did not stop to chase him. Then he deprived himself from eyes and slumber never over came him.It is clear here, this demon is very potent who approaches only at sleep time.


But those people proceed taking this task. Because they have awareness about demon little bit.They know , the main target of demon is Daniel. As Daniel sleeps then the demon will arrive .Who can also hold his control over others. So they try to keep Daniel sleepless.Injecting Daniel, they also hand over him the energy drink so he remains sleepless for a night.But it was not the exact way of saving Daniel's life.Then Alice informs that either there is demon or ghost, they exist in another direction not here.If we cannot help Daniel  living in this World, we will have to move ourselves into the World of dreams.Because demon is also there. Having no option, they all agree on it.


Taking the injection dosage, all are fallen asleep. As a powerful demon, Timon is showing them visions in the dream.And even in the dreams,  they also lose their senses acting according to their will.First of all, Charlie sees his dead son while Alice encounters her dead brother.And Sara herself is breaking off her teeth.
