While on vacation, Sigmund Freud carries out his first lengthy dream analysis. According to Freud's theories, dreams help to preserve sleep by representing in abstract or metaphorical ways fulfilled wishes that would otherwise cause the dreaming person to wake up.

It's Freud's own dream that he interprets. He calls it "The dream of Irma's injection" and devotes fourteen pages to analyzing it in his book The Interpretation of Dreams.
