Set in 2021, "Music Dreams" centers on a lonely boy named Carlos and his brother; they too are refugees separated from their family.

Synopsis: Aion gives us the story of a single-father and terminally-ill sons relationship. When space-enthralled Theo is told he cannot go to the space museum because his immune system is too weak from his illness, Theo is crushed. But late that night, Theos father Dylan gets an idea on how to create a new life-long memory for his son during this difficult time. The story captures the raw emotions of parenting without all the answers and the joy of childhood innocence. Its message encourages all of us to be intentional about the time that we have with our loved ones.
