Mia (Mercado) dreams of singing, Quentin (Lee) dreams of dancing, Paalo (Awinongya) dreams of mending his relationship with his daughter and Alonzo (J’SON) dreams of reconnecting with his family. But fragments of abuse and failures from their broken past, make the trek up life’s hills hard to climb.

The soon to be released DVD movie questions if they’ll be impeded by life’s difficulties or use the obstacles as stepping stones to achieve their dreams. also made real-life dreams come true, by bringing Hollywood to the urban city and offering local Chicago performers and filmmakers to participate in the films production.
