For 25 years Brenda Myers-Powell called herself ‘Breezy’ and she dominated her world—or that’s what she thought. In reality, this world had turned her into a teenage, drug-addicted prostitute. After a violent encounter with a customer, Brenda woke up in the hospital and decided to change her life. Today, she is a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength for hundreds of women and girls as young as fourteen who want to change their own lives. With warmth and humor, Dreamcatcher explores the cycle of neglect, violence, and exploitation that leaves uncountable girls and women feeling that prostitution is their only option to survive. By following the very charming, charismatic and truly empathic Brenda, we understand their realities from their points of view and the difference that one person can make in the lives of many. Winner of the Directing Award, World Cinema Documentary.
