The story

Sleeping with Open Eyes is an English- Tamil bilingual feature film.

This movie has a social cause behind it. In this modern era man is capable of destroying even a hill for mining and other resources which directly affects the earth we live in and the air we breath. Based on few real facts in this hill, the movie goes tense from scene 1 till last. It comes under the genre of mystery thriller involving 2 unmarried couples and a female model where they came to this Jawadhu hill on a discovery tour where the couples died on mysterious circumstances and the police retrieve their bodies but the Female Model’s disappearance is still not known and this incident led to saving a beautiful hill called Jawadu Hills situated in Tamilnadu, South India from the Indian Mining Mafias.
