Two soldiers are resting by the shore during a brutal war, leading one of the soldiers to contemplate his existence and imagine a reality different from his own.


The film, False Dawn, is a story about trauma and, in a sense, finding a way to tear that wall down and seeing what’s on the other side. Based on the poem “False Dawn” by Joshua Smith.
