INSOMNIE is a short surrealist film that follows the struggles of a young man as he tries to fall asleep.

The film delves into the character's troubled mind, depicting a racing inner world filled with addiction, desire for women, anxiety, despair, rage, loneliness, passion, and a host of other passing thoughts. As the night wears on, the character's mind and his longing for peace become increasingly agitated. The film explores the bizarre, often disturbing, inner landscape of an odd brain and the struggles that one might face in trying to find a moment of tranquillity amidst chaos.
