Trees in the distance sway against an unwelcoming sky as John (Robbie Tann) and Mary (April Matthis) begin their journey. An adaptation of a play by Caridad Svich, co-written by director/producer Neulander, “Fugitive Dreams” plunges into the very depth of the American soul. In this darkly funny adventure, two homeless people go on a strange and bewildering journey across middle America, meeting a cast of bizarre characters searching for compassion and healing.
Inspired, in part, by the latchkey grit of pre-Code fugitive cinema, this bizarre and engaging adventure takes us train-hopping across America’s endless horizons.
