Short Summary

 

"Dream & Smile" is a short indie film based on a real story. It shows a day of a young woman Anna from morning until late afternoon. The viewer follows her on the way to work, home and dream of having a better life. It is a story about one person, but at the same time about millions of people having a similar experience – difficulties immigrants face, self-realization issues, loneliness, happiness, and hope.

Why this project is important to ME

I’m the best person to tell this story because I’ve wrote it. I’ve had a similar
experience, so I can feel the protagonist and understand what she has and another girls/women like she been going through.
