"From the soundtrack to the acting, to the cinematography and editing there’s not a hair out of place...Dawn is an excellent short film that subtly grips you from start to finish, and Stephanie Zari is a director to keep an eye on."

London Film Review

"Brilliant piece of work. The writing, the direction and cinematography impressed."

IndieFlix Review

Dawn is a psychological drama exploring the bond of triplets, broken at birth, that sends surviving siblings Jude and Madison on an intimate quest to fill their sense of loss, grief and loneliness. On their 36th birthday, the missing link in their trinity lays just around the corner. Dawn is also a taster for Stephanie's first feature film IN OUR BLOOD.
