Dream (aka The Sandman) has recently escaped decades of imprisonment, and won the battles necessary to reclaim his lost tools. Still despondent over his lost time and the injustices done to him, he mopes about, following his sister, Death, as she makes her rounds on a typical day in London. Inspired by what he sees of the people she touches, Dream is ready to move on with his life.
