Wakefield

What would your life be like without you?


Wakefield
A successful lawyer with a happy family appears relaxed and contented. In reality, though, he’s suffocating inside. One day, something snaps and he goes into hiding in his garage attic. Leaving his family to wonder what happened to him, he observes them from the attic window as an outsider spying in on his own life. As the days of self-imposed isolation stretch into months, he begins to wonder: is it even possible to go back to the way things were?
