How To Get Out Of Bed

How To Get Out Of Bed

Written by: Nicola Atkinson
Cole is one of five roommates living in a tiny apartment. He comes across a story that links a Canadian multinational company to a garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, which claimed over one thousand lives. He, and everyone in the apartment, subsequently encounters fundamental questions about status, power, structure and censorship. This is a fictional story inspired by true events. How To Get Out of Bed is about what happens when we become disillusioned by the many broken systems masquerading as functional structures.
