This narrative follows a remarkable five year old girl named Janisha, who has dedicated her life to sustaining and preserving the forests that surround her, and her inspiring journey. She teaches the women and children within her village to live a more empowered, sustainable and aware life, highlighting what their actions will preserve and prevent from happening in their lives and for future generations to come. A very important universal message within To Wake is the recognition of women worldwide, their role as nurturer and protector of nature within society and in this case, the rest of the planet. This documentary has created a visual platform for facing critical problems concerning forest fires, species loss, climate change, pollution, and women’s and children’s rights.
