After losing a close friend to suicide, a group of college students from the University of Missouri was determined to enact positive change. They quickly formed a nonprofit awareness raising collective movement: Wake Up. Their educational initiatives help shift the cultural stigma surrounding mental illness, depression and suicide. The film focuses on four different groups, telling the stories of suicide—American veterans, members of the LGBT community, university students, and gun owners, weaving the experiences of the frontlines heroes together. Wake Up confronts the tragedy with a call for action: a dialogue and legislative change to begin the process of improving the world.
