Duration: 1h 34m Director: Jamie Sisley

A quietly powerful look at the ripple effects of opioid addiction, STAY AWAKE explores addiction from the lesser-seen viewpoint of the caretakers–in this case teenaged brothers Oleff and Argus. Their mother, played by Chrissy Metz (star of This Is Us), is loving and well-meaning but powerless to pull herself out of the destructive cycle of her disease. The boys must put their dreams on the backburner as they’re constantly discovering their mom passed out, dragging her to the hospital, and encouraging to go to rehab–with the possibility of relapse always lingering. Anchored by three superb performances, STAY AWAKE finds surprising humor and humanity amid the tragedy of parental addiction.
