Tagline: Everything begins somewhere.

Plot: Mark Milgard's debut film DANDELION, an achingly beautiful story of sudden catastrophe, hard-won redemption and life-changing love, has been winning critical acclaim and fans at festivals across the U.S. and abroad and brought cinematographer Tim Orr an Independent Spirit Award nomination for his breathtaking visuals of an awesome Western landscape. Mysterious, deeply felt and with a sharp poetic edge reminiscent of such American iconoclasts as Terrence Malick, the film provides a fresh take on surviving the teenage wastelands of a troubled world. Composer Rob Williamson sets the story to a hypnotic ambient score and the film features songs from such hot indie artists as Sparklehorse, Cat Power and Doves, among others. Vincent Kartheiser of TV's vampire hit "Angel" and Taryn Manning of "Hustle and Flow" star.

DANDELION comes from the tradition of breakout films that explore the rough, raw underside of American adolescence but takes a 180-degree turn away from anger and hopelessness. Delving into a family tragedy, the film pushes past a series of dark events into the uncommon territory of teenage transcendence. With a bracing honesty, Milgard reveals the emotional reality of a young man figuring out how to face the future with his eyes and heart wide open.
