Nothing lasts forever... THE DREAM CHILDREN will have its world premiere at the Melbourne Queer Film Festival mid March 2015. The Dream Children is a haunting and provocative film about Steven Evans, a troubled TV personality who struggles to find meaning in his life in the face of the superficial world he has created. Smothered by celebrity and materialism Steven’s only release from his numbed state, is through escapes to the ocean and shallow sexual encounters with the acquaintances that orbit his life.
When his long-time partner hurls him headfirst into fatherhood, Steven’s initial reluctance is gradually replaced with love, as he discovers in his new family a bond stronger than any he has experienced before. But the return of an unexpected visitor triggers off a series of events that thrusts Evans and his family into a vortex of loneliness, self destruction and grief.
