Storyline

Based on actual events, Dandelion in the Pavement is a haunting portrait of the isolation of a five-year-old girl, Reagan, who is the lone survivor of a car crash that displaces her in a ravine for ten days. At times poetic and heartbreakingly real, this film becomes an exploration of the resiliency and innocence of a child as the barrier between reality and fantasy dissolves. Reagan spends her days exploring the forest, and playing in a make-believe world where her mother is still alive. As time passes, Reagan's fantasies grow shorter, and harder to hold on to. The girl grows increasingly scared, hungry, and weak. In the end, two park rangers stumble upon the girl sleeping next to her mother, and gently lead her away from the scene. Written by Dandelion

Touching Story

This touching story is based on actual events, and is a haunting portrait of the isolation of a five-year-old girl, Reagan, who is the lone survivor of a car crash that displaces her in a ravine for ten days. At times poetic and heartbreakingly real, this film becomes an exploration of the resiliency and innocence of a child as the barrier between reality and fantasy dissolves.

This film is a definite recommend. I can't wait to see what Karen Stegall chooses to direct next. Despite all the contradictions, one thing is for certain, this 5 or 6-year-old girl had survived something tragic, and perhaps on some level she knew what had happened, but somehow she found the strength and perseverance to live through it.
