Sometimes life gives you lemons, and melons, and pumpkins and all those nasty fruits that you wouldn’t make a decent tasting salad out of… We’ve all at one time been through the challenges of being a teenager in the Kenyan public school system… trying everything to get the very best results in class, have a good balance of friends, and best of all, stay out of trouble… Dream Child is an action-packed account of the life of a teenage boy, going well beyond his way to do the right thing and overcome the unending demands of the society. In one way or another, this is a film that gives us insights into the recent scandalous photo ‘artistry’ that trended on our twitter feeds under the #IfikieWazazi hashtag….
Dream Child is not your typical fairy tale
In a community of varying moral expectations and behavioral demands, the struggle to fit in and suit the moral standards of a highly stratified society leaves ‘Kevin’ the main protagonist at odds with his personal sense of morality and choices. For an intelligent boy with so much ambition, learning about a troubling secret that threatens to shatter his family throws his otherwise promising future in limbo. And, in a horrid deviation from the norms of fictional works of art, this story does not bear the hallmarks of a ‘happily ever after’ type of story… in some stories, dreams do not come true!
