Eyes Upon Waking is a 2018 feature film written by Andy Golub and Jennifer Scott.
Taren Foley survives her second suicide attempt within a week, and is sent from the ER to a psychiatric facility for three days of observation and analysis. Quickly realizing she has no intention of taking her life in the future, Taren alienates herself from the patients and staff, biding her time until she can be released. When circumstances force her to remain locked up all weekend, a compassionate Taren makes an effort to help her fellow patients with their issues, unaware she still neglects her own. By the time she is released on Monday, Taren has yet to feel better about her life, but there is hope that one day, she might.
Eyes Upon Waking uncovers the darkness in the minds of those who suffer from their emotions, yet shows how light can be found with the right kind of help. It stars Jennifer Scott, as well as veteran actors Joe Estevez and Edie McClurg.
