Wake. is a 2018 US dark comedy film by director and producer Cyrus Mirakhor and written by Carey Crim. It is an adaptation of the play WAKE by Carey Crim..[1].

The film marks the independent film debut of comedian Jo Koy[2][3].


A widowed mortician, struggling with agoraphobia, is given a birthday gift from her mother and daughter as a joke. The gift, a life-size male doll named Pedro, goes from funny to fantastical, complicating her ties with her family as well as a budding relationship with a documentary filmmaker.[4]
