What is Meet Me At Dawn about?
"I was at the brink of death, but then my survival instincts kicked in and I swam and swam like my life depended on it."
Meet Me At Dawn is an unflinching tale that is as painstakingly honest as it is tenderly poetic. When an innocent boating trip turns deadly, Robyn and her girlfriend Helen wash up on a far-away shore in the middle of the ocean. As night falls, it becomes obvious that the island they're now stranded on is not at all what it seems at first glance. And with no way home, the two soon discover that neither are they who they appear to be.
This modern-day fable explores the mystery of love, loss, and grief and the urge to dive into a fantasy world that will never come true. Inspired by the myth of Orpheus, who was determined to reclaim his wife Eurydice from the depths of the underworld, Meet Me At Dawn is an unforgettable story that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
