Featuring a stellar urban cast and starring members of the GRAMMY® award-winning Winans family, Dreams marks the feature film debut of “American Idol’s” Syesha Mercado.

Mia dreams of singing, Quentin dreams of dancing, Paalo dreams of mending his relationship with his daughter and Alonzo dreams of reconnecting with his family. Though they all have dreams, fragments of abuse and failures from their broken past, make the trek up life’s hills hard to climb. Set in an urban metropolitan, Chicago area, four different stories are weaved together in an unlikely manner. With notorious criminal and king of the hill, Donte, lurking in the shadows, what will become of our dreamers? Will they be impeded by life’s difficulties or use these obstacles as stepping stones to achieving their dreams?
Sometimes you can’t move forward in life until you have dealt with your past. Dreams places you in a zone of contemplation. It inspires and makes you question what you are doing with your life. It brings the darkness to light. This urban drama highlights the power of overcoming your challenges and pursuing your dreams with everything inside of you.
Packed with twists and turns, Dreams hits us deep in our hearts, where decisions are made that change lives.
Rooted in themes of forgiveness and passion, Dreams is sure to inspire us all to become something bigger than ourselves.
