Beyond Dreams

Rojda Sekersöz - 2017 Sweden - 90 min

Rojda Sekersöz’s feature-film debut delivers a much-awaited women power punch.

The gang’s friendship and dreams are put to the test when Mirja comes out after having served a prison sentence. Mirja decides to break from her past and try a new life. She faces either being loyal to her sick mother and younger sister or the friends who truly were her family. Beyond Dreams is about who you are expected to be and who you want to be, both in the chosen group and society beyond. A refreshing and funny film about young women.
