Michael is a gifted 10-year-old boy with a dream. He wants to write the first opera for puppets - a fascination he has inherited from his beloved grandfather. He is just like any other 10-year-old. He enjoys playing with his friends, although at times they let him down. He loves his mother and father, although at times they aren't very good at being parents.
In a cruel twist, fate makes him unwell. His doctor and everyone who know him, quickly realise what a good person he is, that he is special. He is blessed with a quiet ability to heal other people's troubles, to make their lives better.
Everyone has a dream and it is Michael's greatest wish that they fulfil their dreams as best they can. For Michael, he finds a voice with his puppets that become as real as the people in his life, and they become an escape from the harsher realities surrounding him.
'Dreams' is the story of a whole wonderful life accelerated by a cruel illness into a few short months and a boy who never loses sight of his humour and grace and who becomes a source of joy and happiness to those around him.
