The uniquely intertwined lives of four kindred souls: a priest, a single mother, her teenage son, and an artist are examined in this timeless, inventive story about truth, redemption, love, and the pursuit of acceptance. Pieces Of A Dream cleverly interweaves four vignettes exploring human nature, character, and morality. Piece One--Genesis: "Now I Lay Me" ---opens with the dreams of Shepard Flockings (Shep), a charming young priest in a "close-knit" mid-American neighborhood. Well-respected by both young & old alike, he struggles with the constant pressures of perceived perfection and his own desires and faith. Through endless recurring dreams and the guidance of the older Father Isom, Shep seeks the definitive answer to the age-old question, "Does sin have weight?" However, when their brightest star falls and Shep is shockingly accused of child molestation, the neighborhood is suddenly torn in half. What once seemed to be a picture of the "perfect man," is now made to be a monster, ... Written by One Way Productions, Inc.

A great story about the everyday choices all of us make.
1 March 2006 | by bking989See all my reviews

This is an extremely interesting story and the actor who plays Coop is about as good as anybody I've ever seen. The way the different stories were told and how they are separate, and yet coincide, was also interesting. To see this movie is to like it a lot. The story flows to the point that you don't feel you're watching a film. I recommend it.

You'll see some very good performances and some thought-provoking ideas. I'm still thinking about what the film had to say, and I was completely entertained. All of us must choose sides in the battle between good and evil; there's no middle road. We are shown a good illustration of this fact. Worth seeing.
