Wake Up


Starring /

Life: it’s all in your head.

A debt collector (Michael Mando) has a nervous breakdown at work on the anniversary of his wife’s suicide (Amber Goldfarb). He is pulled between reality and a hallucinative journey into his subconscious as he desperately searches for a way to break free from his misery.

What is the meaning of the images, colors, characters and dialogue that we experience in our dreams and hallucinations? Where do they come from? Could they be a way for our subconscious to guide us into making important decisions in our lives? 



WAKE UP is a cinematic experience that presents itself in a similar way that the mind shoots out ideas and emotions. The audience, along side our protagonist, are challenged to decode for themselves the meaning of this psychological roller coaster that will hopefully lead Johnny to better understand himself and break free from his misery.
