ABOUT THE FILM Though they’ve never crossed paths in
waking life, Maggie (Andrea Londo) and Jimmy (Jackson Rathbone) keep
meeting in dreams, a subconscious realm that both mystifies and
confounds. Each recently devastated by loss and struggling to find
meaning in any of it, fate has undeniably tied the two dreamers together
in ways they don’t yet comprehend. Set in Chicago, a city as magical as
any dreamscape and teeming with collective memories, tragedies, hopes
and desires, these unresolved traumas—both individual and shared—are no
longer wounds to be endured silently, asleep or awake.
In Dreaming Grand Avenue, a film that asks as many questions as
it answers, the experience becomes the very way through the confusion,
pain and disconnection that haunts us. As Maggie and Jimmy navigate
their anguish—with help from a dream detective, a sleep scientist and
even the poet Walt Whitman himself—they’ll discover not only the truth
of their own linked destiny, but that of the waking world, too.
