A Bronx Dream is an inspiring look into the lives of 32 kids from a public school in one of the poorest districts of the Bronx, their discovery of Irish dancing and their journey to a country they have only seen in their imagination. It tells the individual stories of the children and their families, explores their often dangerous and uninspiring environment and charts their fierce passion for Irish dancing and the relentless efforts of their inspirational teacher. Filmed on the streets of the Bronx and in Ireland, this is the story of children from the mean streets who have taken on an unfamiliar culture and triumphed.
