Director Carmen Torres’ pensive voice takes us on a journey through the figures from her past, lingering over beautiful memories of her adoptive mother, and invites us to join her on a personal odyssey in search of her biological mother. Fractured moments of her everyday life and brief impressionist shots — a laughing child, a butterfly in flight, the wavy flow of water — make us privy to her intimate exploration of the surrounding reality and her own self, examining her relationship with each of the two maternal images she discovers. “Dawn," a celebration of the present, of memory and of the future, is a keen observation of how our surroundings — people, places, the little things — make their mark on us and on how we deal with loss. What truly defines us and how much can we really change? In a style that is very personal and full of life, Carmen Torres shows how our past pushes us forward to become and meet new people.
