Storyline

In New Orleans, Madison Walker suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID) and tries to commit suicide. She is treated together with other patients by the psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Barnes. Madison has an estranged mother, who is a religious fanatic woman, and her father was neglectful with her when she was younger. When Madison leaves the psychiatric hospital, she goes to her old apartment. Then she decides to lock herself in the apartment for thirty day expecting to find why she is so messed up since she has neither friend not a job. On the 30th day, Madison makes an important discovery about Dr. Barnes and her patients. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Out of the dark, light can come.
3 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about Waking Madison, I was skeptical. I knew it was related to mental illness and what is or isn't considered reality. I expected a really "out there" film, one that I would struggle to understand. What ended up being my reality was quite a surprise. As someone that works in the mental health field with people dealing with trauma, I was captivated by the characters and the story line. What I thought was taking place, ended up being a twist which to me makes a film great. This is the writer and producer's story. It is a story of torment as the young woman searches for help. It is a story of resilience and hope. I believe there are parts that live inside of each of us that can be destructive, but there are parts that can strengthen us as well. I would recommend that anyone that sees Waking Madison watch the entire film to see the outcome that is unexpected. The actors were phenomenal as well as the location and art. As I believe, also, there is beauty in the darkness. Out of the darkness in this story, comes the light of life.
