Blue Dawn is a coming-of-age drama that centres on a young man, Aaron, returning home to rural Ireland after serving time in the British Army. However, he soon struggles both to settle back into his old way of life and to rediscover the relationships he’d left behind. His troubled conscience, coupled with the realisation that he is no longer the innocent boy who left home some years earlier, propel Aaron into a state of inner conflict and, ultimately, force him to face his own humanity
