Waking Dream title screen

WAKING DREAM weaves together the stories of six undocumented young people as they sit in limbo between deportation and a path to citizenship. DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) has provided nearly 800,000 undocumented young people a chance to pursue the “American Dream.” After DACA is rescinded, WAKING DREAM follows the unfolding fate of these six individuals.
