DREAMERS is a short sci-fi film about two kids — Ron and Eileen — who dream of becoming astronauts and flying in space, but encounter setbacks and reality as adults. Ron (Vasilios Asimakos) finds work as a scientist for NASA designing revolutionary new spacecraft, while Eileen (Kate Jurdi) trains as a pilot for an upcoming mission. However, a tragic crash after launch puts Eileen in the hospital and lands Ron in a boring cubicle job, with their childhood aspirations now in danger of being shelved for good. 

Told entirely through expressive visuals and music, the film emphasizes the importance of pursuing one's true passion, regardless of how long it takes or how difficult it is to attain.
