DreamTown captures the life of Carlos Maldonado, an Afro-Ecuadorian soccer player with a dream of playing professionally. It is a story of striving for athletic success juxtaposed against Ecuador's disenfranchised Afro-descendants, whose esteemed athletes have brought Ecuador to the top level of international soccer tournaments—the World Cup.

The film is set in the impoverished backwater towns of El Chota Valley, and captures a region that, prior to the 2002 World Cup, was invisible to the rest of the world.
