Dreams on Fire – Premiering at Glasgow Film Festival

WORLD PREMIERE ANNOUNCEMENT Saturday 6th March Glasgow Film Festival

Yume has always dreamed of being a dancer. Opposed by her family, she runs away to Tokyo. Witnessing the talent of her countless peers, she is quickly confronted by the reality of how difficult it will be to achieve success. Penniless but undefeated, she works as a hostess in Tokyo’s red-light district to sustain herself. All the while, she studies and integrates herself into the dance community. Throughout her journey, her dance skills and confidence improve, as she overcomes countless challenges and forges strong friendships.
