One sunny spring morning, a small community in New Zealand is suddenly overwhelmed by a temporary deadly insanity.

There are fourteen survivors.

Trapped inside a ´No-Go´, cut off from the outside world, they must pull together, bury the dead, face their fears - and survive.

Because whatever caused the madness is still at large. And it is hasn´t finished with them yet.
Wake is a story of extreme events, ordinary people and invisible monsters.
