La Vida Es Sueno
Is life a dream? Or do realities begin in dreams?
“Awake,” NBC’s new drama, premiered on March 1st, 2012. One night police detective Michael Britten, played by Jason Isaacs, survives a horrific car wreck—but not his family.
He becomes conscious and finds he’s living two distinct realities. In one his son is alive, his wife gone. Yet when he next opens his eyes he enters a different world where his wife lives but his son is dead. In each “reality” he has a separate psychiatrist or psychologist. Both tell him the other doctor is a figment of his dreams.
Soon the two realities blend, cross, meld. Details of police cases from one reality charge into the other. Asked by one of his doctors to choose sanity and the loss of his family, Britten declares he cannot leave either his son or his wife. He pain is too great. He must live fully in both worlds.
Many people live in one reality but would prefer another. Are they like Britten?
