    • Synopsis
    • DREAMLAND is a gripping tale of desire, solitude and betrayal that unfolds against a backdrop of human trafficking, deception and unfulfilled hopes. The film interweaves four highly unsettling stories that take place simultaneously on Christmas Eve, with each story linked to the other via the character of Mia, a Bulgarian girl working as a prostitute on the streets of Zurich. While preparing a family Christmas dinner, pregnant Lena finds out that her husband Martin has been cheating on her with prostitutes. Judith is a dedicated social worker who’s living out her sexual fantasies with a police officer, thus betraying her boyfriend Jonas. Recently-divorced Rolf is desperately trying to improve his relationship with his teenage daughter. Maria, widowed and lonely, yearns to seduce Juan, who’s still grieving over his wife’s death. Mia becomes the very centre and falls prey to all of these stories.
