Like Dandelion Dust is a compelling drama about the intertwined lives of two families and the struggles of parenthood. Joey has had a picture-perfect life with the privileged Campbell family until the day they receive a startling phone call telling them that Joey's birth parents want him back. Now a judge's decision could tear him away from the only home he has ever known. Each character will be tested as one family fights to keep the son they love and the other to begin a new life.
Exploring the different meanings of being a parent through the gritty and realistic lives of the struggling, blue-collar Porter's and the well-to-do Campbell's, the lives of the two families intersect, intertwine and collide, all for the love of a little boy. Joey's future hangs in the balance as issues of parenthood and class warfare play out. Someone must make the bravest decision of his/her life; showing that sometimes the greatest love is letting go. Through critically acclaimed acting performances, this film bravely exposes the humanity in each character, reminding the viewer that people in all walks of life have the potential to be the best and worst versions of themselves at any time. Hard life issues such as domestic and alcohol abuse affect families, crossing generations and ethnic boundaries, as the film hits a core place, deep in the heart of audiences everywhere.
