Storyline

Two young kids in love, one young graffiti artist and the other a foster-child, find trouble on the mean streets on the other side of the river in New York City. Officer Charles Banks finds young Danny tagging subway cars and then catches Teiresa selling drugs for another misled teen, Kirk. The officer, instead of turning both of them in, gives both teens a chance to make more of their lives together. Changing their ways turns out to be more challenging than first thought.

Dreams Don't Die..BEST FILM FOR IKE EISENMANN!
11 July 2003 | by XanthusFilmworks-1See all my reviews

Dreams Don't Die, was a CLASSIC film for Ike Eisenmann. It told of youth, and it hinted at his OWN personal beliefs RE: Drug Use. Quote.. "Naw I don't use that stuff, drugs are for losers". I think it's VERY cool that Iake (as he spells his name now) and his lovely wife Alex, made a GREAT short film called "Single Family Dwelling" that won a "Partnership for a drug free america award" at The Palm Springs Intl. Film Fest. Iake is a GREAT producer/ director, yet I feel he's even better in front of the camera, Bring back the dream's Ike....afterall, this IS the "Land Of Suprises"....-Ethan Esq.
