A new trailer has gone live for the independent sci-fi movie Sleep Dealer, from director Alex Rivera. You can watch it after the jump.

Here's how the filmmakers describe Sleep Dealer: Sleep Dealer is our tomorrow today, a corporation-controlled, militarized near future where the United States has successfully closed its borders. Escaping from his home in Mexico, Memo Cruz (Luis Fernando Peña) arrives in Tijuana, "City of the Future," where he meets Luz (Leonor Varela), who sells her recorded memories on the Internet. A strange and complex relationship is set in motion between Memo and Luz, who wants to obtain his memories to sell to an anonymous client.

Sleep Dealer opens April 17.
