Film Description: A young woman muses, “In our dreams, we can escape reality, even if it’s just for a moment.” She dreams about escaping poverty, described as systematic living: the chain reaction spurred by a lack of opportunities and education in her community. She struggles to keep her dreams alive, using spoken word as way to share her thoughts and hopes for a better life.
