The 2021 sci-fi thriller Cosmic Dawn revolves around a young woman who joins a UFO cult after her mother appears to have been abducted by aliens.
She’s been told she’s crazy for most of her life after witnessing an alien abduction as a child. Then, while still a young woman, Aurora discovers a book written by the leader of The Cosmic Dawn and joins the group. Aurora experiences a plethora of miracles during her stay at the cult’s remote island compound, including consciousness-expanding flowers and a developing friendship with Tom, the island’s cook. Aurora begins to wonder if Elyse is sane (and herself) as one of her fellow cult members starts to display increasingly bizarre behavior.
Aurora has moved forward with her life after dissolving the cult years later. She appears to be living a normal life now. Aurora is forced to confront her past when she finds Elyse in a mysterious video. She and Tom work together to uncover the truth about The Cosmic Dawn. Is Elyse really able to travel to another dimension? Do her prophecies refer to mass suicides among cult members who remain alive?
