About "The Insomniac"
Although he recently lost his father, John Figg seems to have it all - a beautiful soon-to-be fiancé, a loving dog, a new promotion, and loyal friends - until the house he inherits gets viciously robbed. Convinced a robbery will happen again and by someone he knows, John develops a severe case of insomnia.
John goes through a downward spiral, choosing to stay awake until he catches his culprit. Are his neighbors to blame? His friends? His girlfriend? His clients? He has reasons to accuse all and a ton of note pads to write out all his irrational - and sometimes rational - convictions.
THE INSOMNIAC is inspired by a true story. Eddy Salazar caught someone breaking into his house after a scheduled meeting was canceled. That night, Salazar didn't sleep at all, thinking about what could've happened if he, in fact, went to the meeting. For the next two weeks, he kept waking up in the middle of the night after hearing regular ambient noises, which led to writing the screenplay for the movie.
