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.
