Awake: Plot explained
Please note: This article may contain spoilers.
The premise of Awake follows Gina Rodriguez as an ex-soldier named Jill as the protagonist. The world is hit by an event similar to a solar flare, which means all electronic items and devices no longer work and people have lost the ability to sleep.
Jill’s daughter Matilda seems to be the key to saving the world before everyone tears each other apart. Now Jill must navigate her and Matilda’s way to safety and to the people that can help humanity, as chaos erupts around them.
While they do so, people become unhinged from not sleeping, this puts them in harmful situations that they may not survive.
