What is it about?

Here is how The IMDb describes this anime movie:

Three scientists at the Foundation for Psychiatric Research fail to secure a device they’ve invented, the D.C. Mini, which allows people to record and watch their dreams.

A thief uses the device to enter people’s minds, when awake, and distract them with their own dreams and those of others.

Chaos ensues.

The trio – Chiba, Tokita, and Shima – assisted by a police inspector and by a sprite named Paprika must try to identify the thief as they ward off the thief’s attacks on their own psyches.

Dreams, reality, and the movies merge, while characters question the limits of science and the wisdom of Big Brother.

I only barely remember part of the end of my last dream from last night that was inspired by the Japanese animated film Paprika, which I watched last night and it was a pretty good film, and the dream that I had before this dream was also inspired by Paprika but I can not remember that dream.

The end of my last dream took place during the day outside in the parking lot of the Walmart in the city of D, this was a shared dream, and people could connect to this shared dream using a new dream sharing device (somewhat like the DC Mini from the film Paprika) from a portable RV (recreational vehicle) that a man with whitish-colored skin with yellowish hair wearing glasses was running who worked for the company who made the device.

I think that his RV was actually parked at the back of the left side entrance of the Walmart parking lot, he had beds that you would lay on inside the RV and he would connect the dream sharing device to your head, and he would monitor your vital signs while you were in the shared dream to make sure that everyone was okay/not dying; but I am not sure if he was authorized to use this dream sharing device yet.

Somehow most people did not know about the dream sharing device yet so I was probably one of the few people to use it and know about it before it became popular thanks to the man who worked for the company who made it, and there was at least one other person inside the shared dream when I entered it; and this person was a man with whitish-colored skin with dark-colored short hair wearing a dark grayish colored suit.
