Daybreak is a non-traditional, coming-of-age musical journey about the troubled relationship of Dylan Ryan, a 40-year old painter and his in denial wife Rebecca, whose biological clock is ticking more loudly with each passing day. The real issue with their marriage? Dylan likes to sleep with men. As the couple moves into Dylan's childhood home in San Francisco, the story of Dylan's parents unfolds and intertwines as memories haunt the old house, which spirals Dylan further into darkness..."I pray for Daybreak to take away my heartache. Longing to set free the demons haunting me, wishing I could feel alright…"
