“Beautiful Dreamer” is a science fiction time travel story that takes place in the near future. But it is also a personal story.
A young dying mother sacrifices everything in order to be able to see her daughter grow up. She manages to visit her daughter during a few key moments of her life. The visits are sometimes sad and sometimes beautiful. They are given a lifetime together, but their lives are torn apart. It is a lifetime chopped up in small, short moments.
This scenario is about the relationship between a mother and a daughter. From the child’s boundless love, to the teenage daughter’s emotional liberation process and so on through life.
What is a parent willing to sacrifice to get to see her child grow up, and who pays the price?
Who do we become when we grow up, and how are we shaped by the choices our parents make?
