The uplifting stories of four low-income women who overcame tremendous odds to earn college degrees and help others to forge a path out of poverty.

American Nightmare / American Dream presents the stories of four women who overcame inequality, as well as unfair laws and practices, to succeed despite their time spent in homeless shelters and prison. Three of the film’s featured participants; Leyla Martinez, Shawnta Alston & Hirah Mir will be on hand to discuss the project. They are now working to help other low-income people achieve a  college degree as a path to the American Dream. When completed the film will travel to high schools, community centers and religious congregations to inspire young people and be a part of our solution for America’s future.
