“Dreams” will be available on DVD via Lionsgate on January 28th. Director Joel Kapity interweaves four powerful stories of inner city life as Chicago residents fight to overcome difficult circumstances.
Simultaneously behind the scenes, Kapity also made real-life dreams come true in Chicago by literally bringing Hollywood to the urban city with opportunities for aspiring performers and filmmakers to participate in the production.
Mia (Mercado) dreams of singing, Quentin (Marchello Lee) dreams of dancing, Paalo (Joseph Awinongya) wants to mend the relationship with his daughter and Alonzo (J-Son) hopes to reconnect with his family but the realities of abuse, failure from their broken pasts and a notorious criminal make the path to their dreams an uphill battle. Set in urban Chicago, these four stories are woven together to create an inspiring tale of the hard work it takes to achieve one’s dreams.
