What are the secrets that stay hidden when we pass? What are the damning stories we hide from others? Who are the people that continue on after our chapter ends? What is our legacy? The Wake explores these questions while detailing the narratives that can never be written in an obituary. Drama and disappointment have always followed the Simms family, but with a pending community reconstruction project and unrivaled family crises, the foundation of the Simms family will forever be changed at The Wake.
