A dream called America is a documentary made on Shahbaz, a 15 year old boy from Gujarat, India. He is the third among the five children of his father Aftab who makes a living by repairing cycles on a footpath. Shahbaz had studied in the US for a year on a scholarship, where he was hosted by an American couple. There he experienced a comfortable and carefree life, which highly contradicted his life in Gujarat. Coming back to his real home, Shahbaz therefore, finds it difficult to cope with the surroundings and people. He openly desires to go back and settle in US, leaving his parents in a dilemma.
