Once upon a time, a lovely maiden lived in an enchanted land. Surrounded by great friends and a terrific job, yet cursed with insomnia, she longed for the day when Prince Charming would enter her life ... so she could finally get some sleep. DREAM FOR AN INSOMNIAC is a charming, hip romantic comedy, a reverse Sleeping Beauty tale for everyone who's ever dared pursue their wildest dreams, starring Ione Skye, Jennifer Aniston and Mackenzie Astin. Frankie (Ione Skye, Gas Food Lodging) hasn't slept a full night since she was six years old. She's convinced that once she and her best friend Allison(Jennifer Aniston, The Good Girl) leave San Francisco to pursue acting careers in Los Angeles, she'll meet her dream man: one "with the soul of a poet and eyes like Frank Sinatra." Then, she'll be able to sleep. Four days before moving to L.A., David (Mackenzie Astin, The Evening Star) walks into Frankie's life. She's convinced he's her very own Prince Charming. She now has only three days to convince him that she's the love of his life.
