Wake Up
13 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a commentary on our Pavlovian attention to time. A young man tries to continue in bed, but there are so many alarms, and no matter what he does he can't get it to stop. So he tries to do away with the noise. Right? It's a wonderful opportunity for discussion.
