After escaping a dangerous country, a young man fights to keep his body, his dignity and his dream alive. Survival is the first order of business in New York City but he strives to achieve more and when success comes within his grasp he finds himself up against an uncaring immigration bureaucracy. Based on a true story, "Dreaming American" is a humorous, sad, and always compelling story of courage, living by one's wits, and the struggle to make it in America. Written by Anonymous
