Go BACK

Dream, Determination & Vision

Every dream has a beginning, but as Erician – the lead actor – discovers, it is okay to start over when you have lost your way. But starting over comes with a cost. In the process of making his dream come true, he loses his wife, Anglican, as she too needs to follow her own dreams. This is not his first loss. His friendship with Hurricane broke when Anglican didn’t return Hurricane’s love for her.

He recruits creatives with raw talent, from a homeless rapper to a filmmaker to a model, an instrumentalist, dancer and more, as it was his and Hurricane’s original dream to encourage the creative arts. Together those recruited tell their own stories.
