Final words

In an interview, director and co-writer Raso told EW,

“We were presented with this idea of what if something happened and no one can fall asleep? Immediately I thought of this Sophie’s Choice type scenario. I was looking for something to ground the story in reality. It occurred to me, ‘Well, what if no one could sleep except one person? What would that would feel like? And what if that one person was one of your two kids? What do you do? Do you potentially sacrifice one to save the other?’ That’s where the bones and the juice of the story came from.”
