Found video footage tells the tale of three film students (Heather Donahue, Joshua Leonard, Michael C.

Though they’ve never crossed paths in waking life, Maggie and Jimmy keep meeting in dreams. Each recently devastated by loss and struggling to find meaning in any of it, fate has undeniably tied them together in ways they don’t yet comprehend. Set in a city as magical as any dreamscape, these unresolved traumas—both individual and shared—are no longer wounds to be endured silently, asleep or awake. In DREAMING GRAND AVENUE, the experiences become the very way through the 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.

"A small but ambitious and metaphysical and deeply poetic (in more ways than one) gem with big ideas, stunningly original visuals of Chicago — and beautifully honed performances." -- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
