You know the drill: there’s a worldwide catastrophe, and all our creature comforts are suddenly worthless. Society disintegrates, and one adorable child is our last hope for survival. That’s the premise behind Netflix’s upcoming thriller, Awake, starring Gina Rodriguez and you can watch the first trailer right now.
In Netflix‘s Awake, “global hysteria ensues after a mysterious catastrophe wipes out all electronics and takes away humanity’s ability to sleep,” according to the official synopsis. “Scientists race against the clock to find a cure for the unexplained insomnia before its fatal effects eliminate the human race. When Jill, a former soldier, discovers her young daughter may be the key to salvation, she must decide: protect her children at all costs or sacrifice everything to save the world.”
Along with Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, Annihilation), Awake stars Arianna Greenblatt (Love and Monsters) as the daughter, as well as Finn Jones (Iron Fist, Game of Thrones) and Jennifer Jason Leigh (Annihilation, Single White Female). Awake is directed by Mark Raso, and written by Mark and Joseph Raso based on a story by Gregory Poirier.
