What is Before I Wake about?

A frightened man with a gun enters a child's room nervously. He looks around as if expecting something to reveal itself in the shadows, when a sudden commotion makes him pull the trigger. The gunfire awakens the child and the man breaks down in tears. Later, Jessie (Kate Bosworth) and Mark Hobson (Thomas Jane) take in a foster child, eight-year-old Cody Morgan (Jacob Tremblay), after their young son Sean (Antonio Evan Romero) dies from accidentally drowning in the bathtub.
On his first night, before Cody goes to sleep, he reveals to Jessie about the nightmareish creature called "the Canker Man" to which Jessie brushes it off and tells Cody that its only a bad dream and it can't do any real damage. Later that night, the two are amazed as multicolored butterflies flutter across the living room, emitting a strong glow. Mark tries to capture a blue butterfly to show to Cody, as he has a liking for butterflies. However, Cody wakes up and the butterflies disappear. The next day at school, he befriends a girl name Annie (Kyla Deaver) and antagonizes a mean student. At home, Cody asks Mark who the child in the picture is, and Mark replies that he is their dead son, Sean. Cody answers that his mom is dead, too. That night, the couple see their deceased child and try to hug him. When Cody wakes up, Sean disappears. Upon discovering Cody's gift to make his dreams become reality, Jessie takes advantage of it. She lets Cody watch home videos of Sean and, that night, the couple once again sees their beloved child. Days later, Mark accuses his wife of using Cody for his gift instead of loving him. After the argument, Mark takes down the pictures of Sean.
