This film is based on the short story "The Russian Sleep Experiment". IKFF is an acronym for the International Kids Film Festival.

'' Remember the time when sleep was deprived of every person on this planet. It was the time of the World Wars. One such story is of a claim made by the US government on the Soviet Union. They claimed that the USSR was conducting a military-sanctioned secret experiment in which political prisoners were locked in a chamber and kept awake through air stimulants. They were to be granted their freedom once the experiment was complete. The story is yet to be discovered. ''
