3% of all men are considered sociopaths, lacking concern for the well being of others or for the consequences of their actions. 1% of all men are born without the emotional capability to experience fear. A very small percentage of the male population will statistically therefore be made up of sociopaths without fear. WAKE tells the story of one such man -- a modern day Jekyll and Hyde who knows no bounds.
