Awake starring Gina Rodriguez release date, cast, synopsis, trailer, and more


Remember when apocalyptic films like Bird Box and The Platform first premiered on Netflix? They had everyone talking for at least a month on what they would do if they were in the same situation. Yeah, we’re going to be doing that again with Awake, an upcoming Netflix movie, that will have us losing sleep. Literally.

Awake is a film that will join the streaming platform later this year and it features an amazing dystopian premise that is sure to leave you thinking and you definitely don’t want to miss this movie.

We tell you everything to know about the upcoming release including a fresh trailer down below.

Awake plot synopsis

Awake tells the story of a society riddled with chaos and confusion as they lose a very important human ability, sleep.

A mother must fight to keep her family alive as her daughter is the only one who possesses this much-needed ability. However, as the world and herself are slowly descending into hysteria, will she successfully fight off a deranged society or succumb to the madness?

More on the official synopsis here:

After a global event wipes out humanity’s ability to sleep, a troubled ex-soldier fights to save her family as society and her mind spiral into chaos.
