Waking Up (2011)

Jake works at a crematory and burns bodies every day. They mean nothing until he recognizes one: his former art professor.

Being faced with the life his professor left behind, Jake delivers the urn and revisits the dreams he gave up on years ago.

This 10 minute film moved me to my core.
And reminds me that others awake at their own pace, with their own catalysts and as they need for their own path.
Thank you for this. Blessings!
