Losing Sleep presents interview footage of a self-confessed computer hacker who is struggling with chronic insomnia. His work on the computer has become such an all-encompassing cyberworld that, for him, returning to the grounded physical world is a frightening endeavour. Yet only by submitting to simple physical acts, such as long deliberate walks late at night, can he find rest. "Every single sensation, every single idea is coupled to every other one, and all of them are at the same time. Like everything I ever read, everything you see, every sensation comes together in this enormous flow. Nothing can be blocked. The constant acquisition of new things, of more experiences, of more programming, more of everything."
