The Wake of Light is a romantic drama about Mary (played by Rome Brooks), a young woman grappling between the deep-felt responsibility in caring for her aging father and their broken down farm and her newfound feelings for Cole, a charismatic young man (played by Matt Bush) passing through town on the way to see the Grand Salt Flats in Utah, who falls for her and asks her to join him on the road. In confronting the heart-rending choice to leave her father and journey with Cole, Mary is forced to confront the real issue keeping her from having a life of her own and ends up making a choice no one saw coming. The Wake of Light explores the desire to connect with life's deeper purpose, the mysterious call of nature and questions the true meaning of faith. Written by Anonymous

Great Indie
15 June 2019 | by philippatrick-25857See all my reviews

This film is a perfect mix of a dramatic narrative infused with poetry. It reminded me of The Piano or What's Eating Gilbert Grape (in a strange way). The director really has a unique and different vision than most of what you see you there. Kudos here!
