Green Dream is an author documentary that contemplates nature's place within the city.

Maia Iotzova takes the viewer on a journey from the wild fields of Sofia, Bulgaria to the manicured parks of Vancouver, Canada and, finally, to a community-managed park (Le Champ des Possibles) in Montreal. Observing the cities where she has lived, the filmmaker tries to piece together the urban and the wild, two realities that have traditionally been seen as opposites. 

Green Dream is also a film about maturing as a person and living with one's roots spread between different cultures. The film takes some surprising turns as the author questions her own relationship with nature and searches for a sense of home in the fragmented experience of immigration.
