Breaking dawn trailer
Breaking Dawn is a 2004 independent American mystery-thriller written and directed by Mark Edwin Robinson. It is the directorial debut of Robinson, who was 22 at the time and saw the film showcased at the Cannes Film Festival, Marché du Film and at The Hollywood Film Festival. The film stars Kelly Overton and James Haven.
Dawn, a young medical student is charged with uncovering the murder of a mental patient's mother. The patient, Don, holds many secrets and disturbs Dawn with his insane ramblings. As Dawn continues to investigate the murder, she believes Don's paranoia is out of control at the mention of a menacing figure named Malachi. She begins to question whether Malachi exists when she is stalked by a mysterious figure or if her imagination and Don's craziness are affecting her judgement.
