A potent coming of age thriller, Mean Dreams brings together the desperation of life on the run and the beauty and wonder of first love. As young love blossoms between fifteen year olds Casey and Jonas, Casey’s abusive home life reaches a new level of danger, and Jonas takes the lead in their escape by stealing a bag full of drug money from Casey’s corrupt cop father (Bill Paxton). Casey flees with Jonas and together, under relentless pursuit from her father; they learn the hard truth of what it will take to survive. In the end, they are forced to make a life-altering choice from which there will be no turning back.
