American Dream

Part of "Good Guys Only Win in Movies"


85 min

A new work by Nicoleta Esinencu that takes the dream of a Moldovan student to travel to America and to work there as a starting point. The dream comes true, but unfortunately reality always gets complicated. She ends up in the nightmare of working illegally in Moscow in order to pay the debts made in America. A bizarre story which offers a great opportunity to talk about the two superpowers that influence the whole world.
