Dreams I Never Had (Khat Vong) Story Inspired by true events: A teenage girl is smuggled into the united states. And held captive as a domestic laborer in the home of a wealthy family. She is befriended by the family’s young gardener, himself an illegal from Mexico. So their friendship inspires them to break free of their hopeless, sequestered lives.
In their previous collaborations World of Wargames and Dreams I Never Had (phim le hay). So Lisa and Iyad wove powerful stories with themes of peace and tolerance.
Dreams I Never Had will be their third collaboration and their first feature. So this family drama will address the plight of America’s “invisible” children. Those who must live and work secretly, whether by choice or force. The young protagonists of this story can scarcely dream of achieving what we Americans take for granted – our homes, our education, our rights and privileges, our safety, our families, our citizenship, and most importantly – love. So Iyad and Lisa hope that whoever views this film (phim my thuyet minh) will abandon their prejudices against people of other races, religions, and cultures. Even if just for 90 minutes.
