Three teenage girls living in poverty and struggling with dysfunctional families and early pregnancy turn to prostitution to survive. Yet despite this grim reality, Jessica, Daiane and Sabrina attempt to partake in the everyday joys and dramas of being teenage girls: they laugh and gossip over new boyfriends, skip school to go to the beach and dream of getting an mp3 player. Theirs is a life of tragedy and beauty. "Stolen Dreams" is a rare film: one that pulls no punches, yet is infused with a gentle, poetic sensibility.
