The film follows a mass 'sleep walk' event in which protesters walked through the streets of Leeds with dressing gowns, pillows and blankets to highlight Amnesty's belief that the UK was "sleepwalking into an assault on our human rights".

The Government abandoned the proposals after it was defeated in the House of Lords by 191 votes yesterday.
