Finn: Forced to be Awake


Have you ever been going on your merry way, when something made you stop in your tracks? If you have, then you might understand the odd change of events ex-storm trooper Finn finds himself experiencing.

One day, dropped into the  heat of battle, two First Order storm troopers get caught in the cross fire. Though on the outside they are both uniformly featureless soldiers seemingly void of emotion, on the inside one of them snaps. With his partner shot right next to him, and blood on his helmet, Finn’s awareness is activated.

Instead of shell shock, Finn becomes, awake and aware of the atrocities that he and his fellow troopers are inflicting on others. His conscience is now conflicted. His rock solid dedication to a cause is being questioned. Life is changing rapidly inside and the outside.



Finn as part of his First Order training, was taught that the Empire was good and the New Republic, Jedi, and the Rebels were bad. He has a twisted view of the truth his whole life.
Finn swims out into deep waters when he not only befriends Rey, but the supposed legends of Han Solo and Chewbacca. Through his newly opened eyes, we see almost a new person being born again in many ways. He even risks his own life for the life of people who were once his enemies.

Is life changing around you so fast it is making your head spin?  How are you facing it?
