BEFORE DAWN

POLISH TITLE: PRZED ŚWITEM

REPRESENTED BY KFF

The story of a teenage hairdresser and make-up artist who embarks on a journey through the wild mountains of Albania with his ex-wrestler father. With no escape from each other, they are forced to face a string of difficulties and dangers together in order, finally, to find their way through. Before the Dawn is both an intimate portrait of a relationship between a father and son and a tribute to an unconditional love which endures against all odds.
