Asleep in the Deep is an experimental/narrative film adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft story. In the vein of David Lynch and Maya Deren, the film follows a punk girl, Alyce, down the rabbit hole into a strange land. She is first tormented by a group of upper-class dinner-goers but soon finds a strange building with even stranger inhabitants. Her new odd neighbors are topped by a reclusive violin player, Zahn, who mesmerizes all with his playing. Alyce eventually meets and befriends the black, older violin player to find out too late that he plays for all of the lost children in the world. The next time they meet, Zahn is nothing more than a living-dead musician and Alyce runs from the strange land never to find it again.
