Sleeping and Waking is the story of a man, an accomplished artist and teacher, whose paintings and woodcuts reflected his deep religious faith, a faith of certainty beyond question. Four years before the picture begins, his doctors find, to their amazement, that although Sullivan Daniels can run three miles a day without pain, his body is riddled with malignancy. Then the choice: certain death, or a highly experimental, radical operation, an operation that had killed the first four who had opted for it. So, Sullivan, not knowing why at the time, chose the operation. And it worked. He became a medical/artistic celebrity; instantly famous for his survival and his art. But, rather than embracing his public persona, Daniels turned inward, refusing to sell a single painting. When the hot media spotlight finally turned away from him, he was left with the physical, emotional and spiritual consequences of his life saving decision. His wife, Amanda, could no longer touch him. His mother believed that he had thwarted God’s will and should have accepted the promised life hereafter. And worst of all, his hands won't draw as before. Having abandoned his faith, Sullivan Daniels finds that everything else in his life has abandoned him.
