Tomorrow at Dawn

Tomorrow at Dawn

A girl with pancreatic cancer wants to surf with her dad one last time before she dies. The moment the girl stepped on the surfboard, she was intoxicated by the buoyancy it held her up to. Floating brought her unparalleled peace in life. Peace is a more vast force. The state of insensibility is beyond life and death. Just like the ocean behind it, it also has some kind of natural and mysterious power, and it is the place where life on earth is born and destroyed. When people see the sea, they will have two feelings, one is that the sea is unpredictable, boundless, and even a little scary; the other is to feel the majesty and majesty of the sea, and the infinite energy it contains. These two feelings are like the two phases of Avalokitesvara, compassion and wrathful Vajra, all in the mind of the viewer. These two characters of the sea first dispel people’s self-consciousness, which can form a strong reversal and constitute drama. The director intends to use this to construct the conflicts and opposites in this story: the terminally ill and the surfing sport full of vitality, the father who does not want to give up and the daughter who returns to peace.
