PLOT: Flynn Johnson, a young rookie cop in Atlanta suffers from long-term insomnia after killing his veteran partner by accident during a tedious investigation. Drunk and burned out of the incident, Flynn is transferred to the Los Angeles unit for a bizarre twist of events. A murder has taken place in which an honest cop was killed while receiving calls over a neighbor who is accused of drug possession. Knowing that there is more to the case, the young cop gets into the underworld of drugs and corruption as his sanity is pushed to the brink of psychotic breakdown as he discovers the truth behind his mentor's death.
Comparison Pitch: Insomnia meets Alpha Dog meets End of Watch.
MPAA: Rated R for violent content, language including sexual references, and some drug use.
Note: I wouldn't make this much of an high-octane thriller, more so a psychologically troubling movie following the protagonist's insomnia and trauma while keeping the story dark, gritty, and grounded with clues.
