Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced the January 28 DVD release of Dreams, starring Angie Stone, members of the Gospel-singing family The Winans, and introducing American Idol's Syesha Mercado.
Directed by Joel Kapity, the film interweaves four powerful stories of inner city life as Chicago residents fight to overcome difficult circumstances.
Its synopsis reads:
Mia (Mercado) dreams of singing, Quentin (Marchello Lee) dreams of dancing, Paalo (Joseph Awinongya) wants to mend the relationship with his daughter and Alonzo (J-Son) hopes to reconnect with his family but the realities of abuse, failure from their broken pasts and a notorious criminal make the path to their dreams an uphill battle. Set in urban Chicago, these four stories are woven together to create an inspiring tale of the hard work it takes to achieve one’s dreams.
Tommy Ford (Martin, The Parkers), Terri J. Vaughn (Meet the Browns, Daddy's Little Girls), Mel Jackson (Soul Food, Living Single), Geoffrey Owens (The Cosby Show, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia), and Dennis "LA" White (Notorious) co-star.
