Purple Dreams reveals an extraordinary ARTS in Education success story. This inspirational documentary shadows six at-risk black high school students from the Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte, NC on an emotionally powerful three-year journey of transformation in a racially biased City. With access to the Arts and academic mentors, our at-risk youth have the potential to break the cycle of poverty in a single generation. These students struggle with homelessness, low-income neighborhoods, gang-related violence and single parent households as they further their education with a triumphant musical production that propels them into a world of opportunity they never expected.?
