West of 10th presented the New York premiere of Lia Romeo’s American Dreamers from August 15-19, 2018. In American Dreamers, it's November of 2016. Becca Barrington has just graduated from college, and since then she's been dumped by her boyfriend, rejected by every grad school she applied to, and ended up at a dead-end job in the town where she grew up. To pay off six-figure student loans, she decides to try working as an escort... but her first client turns out to be a mortifying surprise. But at least we're about to elect the first woman president... right?
