Insomniac is the story of a man who made one small error in judgment long ago that cost one man his career, and three people their lives. Cody Russell, former juvenile delinquent and current street hood, befriends Jason Dillon, a bright young man with his whole life ahead of him. Jason and his older sister Amber grew up under the strict guidance of their father Duke, a retired Marine who expected his household to operate with military precision.

Frustrated by his father's stern parenting, Jason begins the path to juvenile delinquency, and finds himself getting drawn deeper and deeper into a world where perhaps for once, he can be the one calling the shots. There is one last hope for Jason, in the form of Eric Stillman, a caseworker for A.C.E.D., a publicly-funded organization that provides mentorships for at-risk teens. ...
