A vivid portrait of a former prostitute who helps women and young girls break the cycle of sexual abuse and exploitation.

Dreamcatcher is a vivid portrait of Brenda Myers-Powell, a former prostitute, who helps women and young girls break the cycle of sexual abuse and exploitation. The film lays bare the hidden violence that devastates the lives of young women, their families and the communities where they live. It's through Brenda's unflinching intervention with desperate women, that we see them regain a sense of hope. Brenda's own story of getting out of the life becomes their inspiration to turn their lives around.
