The Film Stage

Eyes Upon Waking is a True Story about one woman’s struggle to come to terms with her own existence. This film has garnered a great deal of interest from a wide range of people – not only those who identify with the main character’s search for understanding within herself but others who have lost people close to them and want to understand why. The story is told with a surprising amount of humor, which keeps it entertaining while giving the audience a break from the drama. The target audience includes artistic-minded individuals as well as straightforward-thinking, everyday people who don’t know what it’s like to suffer their emotions. The appeal of the story is that it exposes psychological issues still mostly hidden throughout society yet everyone in the world either knows someone who’s experienced these things or felt this way themselves. When simply being alive is a life-or-death struggle, people are drawn to that conflict and want to know what will happen to these characters.
