Plot

A man named James suffers from fatal familial insomnia. One night, he decides to take a drive in order to clear his head and accidentally hits and kills a pedestrian crossing the street since he can't focus well due to his very bad fatigue. James continues to drive until he gets back home and washes away all the blood from his car. James' guilty conscience only makes his insomnia worse and he checks into a sleep clinic. Unable to sleep due to hallucinations of his victim's face, he lies awake without sleep for two months and dies from a massive stroke and a heart attack.

"After 2 months of no sleep, After being haunted day and night, a massive stroke put an end to his living nightmare and sent him to the hell he deserved."
