The Nature of Reality

The Nature of Reality is a 2019 sci-fi drama film by Grayson Taylor.



Jamie, a fourteen-year-old boy, is in a car crash with his sister and mother, and he wakes up to find himself in a new world. The question of what is real—and whether he can ever really know what reality is—confronts Jamie in his attempt to escape. He will never be the same.
