Watch for the Breaking of Day is the poignant story of one Canadian family’s struggle to overcome personal tragedy in the final days of World War II.
Sheila Judge and her son Rob are living quietly in Regina, awaiting the return of Flying Officer Bill Judge from active duty, when they receive the news that he has been killed in action. Thirteen-year-old Rob reacts with defiant disbelief and embarks on a series of rebellious actions that quickly land him in trouble. When Rob and his dog Babe create havoc in old Mary Gilmurray’s henhouse, they are sent to stay with Rob’s grandfather at his cottage in the Canadian Rockies.
Throughout the long days of an unforgettable summer, Rob adapts to the rigours of life in the wilderness and experiences the joy of catching his first trout and watching Babe give birth to a litter of pups. As the bonds of love between the generations are forged and strengthened, Rob finally conquers the pain of loss, accepting the reality of his father’s death.
