The Thai film dives into the lives of four medical students, each facing their own complications, as they face the dangerous consequences of turning sleep deprivation from a habit of choice to a big bet—one that delivers either financial windfall or a fatal end.
“We’re living in an era of uncertainty, an age when money is critically important. The inspiration behind the film is essentially what we have to face in everyday reality. Young people my age often have to live with sleep deprivation as a fact of life, and this led us to the question – what can we achieve by giving up sleep? What if we can simply go about our routines, deprive ourselves of sleep, and still make money out of it? Why would we not do it?” said Kittitat Nokngam, one of the film’s screenwriters.netflix.com
