What Is Netflix's The Sandman About?

Netflix's The Sandman was largely inspired by the classic Sandman series of 1989, centered around Morpheus (Dream) and his six family members (the Endless). Accordingly, the show follows Dream on his rise to power after escaping the entrapment of an occult ritual that imprisoned him for 105 years.

The official storyline of The Sandman reads: "A wizard attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. Fearful for his safety, the wizard kept him imprisoned in a glass bottle for decades. After his escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power."
