A journey into the hallucination of cinema.
CALIFORNIA DREAMS presents five unique individuals in pursuit of a big life dream. Through auditions set up in small towns across Southern California, the film portrays real people with big Hollywood aspirations who, for various reasons, have never had the opportunity to pursue them. No matter what the end game is, whether it’s fame, love, or a fleeting shot at immortality, this bitingly funny film reveals the strange and entrancingly hypnotic grip that Hollywood has exerted, in some way or form, on everyone.
