Gina Rodriguez' thriller is set in a world where no one can sleep.
This upcoming Netflix sci-fi film will keep you up at night! Aptly titled 'Awake,' the film is set in a world where no one can sleep--- except a former soldier's young daughter, who might hold the key to solve the predicament.
The film stars Gina Rodriguez and is directed by Mark Raso. The upcoming thriller looks intense, and we can not help but pick up a vibe similar to 'Bird Box'.
Both films follow a mother trying to keep her son and daughter safe amidst an inexplicable phenomenon that takes away basic human capabilities. If in 'Bird Box' you cant see, in 'Awake' you can't sleep.
Let's dive into the details of the upcoming thriller. Here's everything you need to know about 'Awake.'
A mysterious incident has wiped out all the world's electronics and has taken human's ability to sleep. Chaos ensues as people started losing their minds after being awake for days (think of the popular Creepypasta Russian Sleep Experiment but on a much larger scale). Jill, a former soldier, may have the answer to the problem through her daughter Matilda. But at what cost?
Jill must do her best to fend off threats that might harm her children. However, bringing her daughter to the right people and making sure that she is safe will not be easy, especially when she starts losing her mind from the lack of sleep too.
The film will arrive on Netflix on June 9th, 2021, and will be available to subscribers worldwide.
Here is the complete cast list for 'Awake.'
'Jane the Virgin' and 'Annihilation' actress Gina Rodriguez stars as Jill, a former soldier and mother of two. Before the mysterious event, she was dealing with addiction and is struggling to keep her kids. Lucious Hoyos and Ariana Greenblatt star as her children Noah and Matilda, respectively. Hoyo previously appeared in 'Heroes Reborn' and will star in the upcoming 'Once Upon A Time in Staten Island.'
