Famed UK television director Nick Murphy is making his feature debut with this film. Shooting will commence in June.
The Awakening is set in post-World War I England in 1921. The film focuses on a skeptical woman who goes to a countryside boarding school to investigate rumours that it is haunted. As she thinks "she has debunked the ghost theory, she has a chilling spectral encounter which defies all her rational beliefs."
Nick Murphy co-wrote the script with Stephen Volk.
