    • Synopsis
    • "The events occur between 4:45 am and 6:15 am in the colombian jungle. Mark, an American contractor wakes up doped, tortured and hung up by the arms next to a local prostitute that acts as interpreter whilst the kidnappers want to hack a 60 billion dollars bank account. Mark is forced to play a no-win game. Time is not on his side and the only thing missing is the password, the problem is: give it or not, Mark is dead meat."

      """It's been a long time since I last saw a Hi-Concept movie that's Art-house at the same time."" Pierre David
      ‌‌"Miguel Urrutia´s Wake Up And Die grabs you like a fist, holds you in white-knuckled suspense, then punches with surprise shots to the head and heart". Robert McKee
      Definitely not for the claustrophobic. It's ""Groundhog Day"" meets horror. One of the only Colombian productions ever distributed in Japan and currently under global distribution by Imagination Worldwide."
