Trauma can silence the best of us, but as Haisa and her daughter Aina discover, the spirit of the Dreamcatcher can be awakened with prayer and the ancestors you meet may not be what you expected. Incorporating aerial hoop, puppetry, a rich sound design, projection and text, A Side of Dreams is a visual feast and a surprisingly emotional journey through unconscious memory.
