Shaw, already a bullied outcast at school, struggles to come to terms with his grief and his new life with an emotionally distant dad while wanting a traditional funeral for his mom — something his father can’t afford. Frangione evokes what it’s like to live in conservative, rural America at this particular moment. In a world of swap meets and damaged souls, will this grieving teen find a place to fit in?

    Dream/Life - Confessing about his innermost fears as a young grown up, german Director/Photographer DAVI.IN takes on a journey to realize a version of his life where everything is possible.

What he finds is more than a film. It is a wildyet consistent mix of visual media, forming a unique view on the inner thoughts of a new generation that has learned to experience life more frequently through a screen that through actual experience.
