    Dawn is a quiet young teenager who longs for something or someone to free her from her sheltered life.

    About the Director

    Rose McGowan was born in Italy and raised on a steady diet of pasta, European cinema, and classic films. Along with her cinephile father, she became an amateur film historian, later hosting a show on a classic movie channel. Seeing Lawrence of Arabia restored on 70mm was the high point of her 14th year. Realizing that her passion lies in filmmaking has been a transformative experience for McGowan. Dawn is her directorial debut.
