Maggie and Jimmy have never met, but they keep showing up in each other’s dreams. As they navigate memories, traumas, hopes and desires in sleep and the waking world, they’ll discover the truth of their linked destiny with the help of a dream detective, a sleep scientist and the poet Walt Whitman himself.

Dreaming Grand Avenue Poster | Hugh Schulze, Director

“I’ve wanted to make this comedy love story for years and I’m hugely excited by recreating the mad youth scene of Ireland in 1981 in the wonderfully cinematic big sky county of Kildare. We have a talented cast and crew, cool tunes and crazy dance moves on what we hope is a funny, life-affirming original tale.”
