DREAMLAND is a gripping tale of desire, solitude and betrayal that unfolds against a backdrop of human trafficking, deception and unfulfilled hopes. Four interwoven and unsettling stories set on a Christmas Eve are crossing their paths with MIA, a Bulgarian girl working as a prostitute in the streets of Zurich. While preparing a family Christmas dinner, pregnant LENA finds out that her husband MARTIN has been cheating on her with prostitutes.
JUDITH is a dedicated social worker who’s living out her sexual fantasies with a police officer, betraying her boyfriend JONAS.
Recently divorced ROLF is desperately trying to improve the relationship with his teenage daughter. MARIA, widowed and lonely, yearns to seduce JUAN who’s still grieving over his wife’s death.
MIA becomes the very center and falls prey to all the those stories.
