A documentary study of urban nightlife and insomnia. Following several characters who inhabit the dark world of 24-hour bars, slot machine dives, night clubs and casinos, this film offers a glimpse into the lives of people who seem to love the eternal night. Driven by insomnia, escapism, odd friendships, night adventures, but also criminal underworld and drug addiction, they spend their time in “bunkers”. By using meth and other stimulants, their insomnia and paranoia are only getting worse. An unusual portrait of a subculture that pursues its own values and moral code.
