Mean Dreams is a tense coming-of-age drama about a 15-year-old boy who steals a bag of drug money and runs away with the girl he loves. While her violent and corrupt cop father hunts them down, they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever. Local farm boy Jonas (Wiggins) meets the new girl next door, Casey (Nélisse), and is immediately taken with her. As young love blossoms between the two teenagers, Jonas also discovers that Casey's abusive home life has reached a new level of danger. Jonas takes the lead in their escape by stealing a bag full of drug money from Casey's corrupt father - local cop Wayne Caraway (Paxton). With the stolen cash as their only means to a better life, Casey flees with Jonas and together, under relent-less pursuit from her father, they learn the hard truth of what it will take in order to survive. In the end, Casey and Jonas are forced to make a life-altering choice from which there will be no turning back. Directed by Nathan Morlando, Mean Dreams is a potent directorial tour de force that fuses the desperation of life on the run with the beauty and wonder of first love.
