The refugee Father William is discovering his own vulnerability. The community of brothers struggle to support their leader and their barely-welcome guest. The Hour before Dawn explores the psychological impact of grief and trauma, and the possibility of healing. Wilcock explores the process of having survived suffering, but t yet having moved on.
