After being hit by a seizure Saga's life changes forever. Long forgotten repressed memories suddenly start to come back, forcing her to face a disturbing truth about her past... and present.
Quake follows Saga (Anita Briem), a single mother in her late thirties, who gets hit by a fierce epileptic attack walking in a public park with her six-year-old son resulting in a total memory loss. Afraid of being considered unable to take care of her son, Saga attempts to hide her state from others and occupies herself digging for the answers she needs. As she struggles to gather bits and pieces from her forgotten life, repressed memories that Saga unconsciously blocked as a child suddenly start to come back, revealing a painful truth about herself and the past.
