Following a suicide, a college sleepless experiment gets shut down. The suspended professor (Yasmine Aker) opts to continue the experiments during the summer break when no one is around. She uses a drug called cogniphan to aide in keeping people awake. The experiment is to show that after 200 hours awake a person will never have to sleep again and will have good cognitive skills...don't try this at home.
An issue arises when the folks not sleeping start to hallucinate seeing "ghosts." A very clever explanation is offered, one rather unique to the genre. The characters were fine, but not powerful. The film is more science fiction than horror.
