A dying mom has 2 years left to live. So she abandons her daughter and does the unimaginable.

Filmmaker David Gaddie offers an moving, emotionally devastating paean to the enduring bonds of love and family, as a young mother makes a difficult choice to keep her love for her daughter alive.

An unnamed mother, ill with a terminal disease, has only two years left to live — and a baby daughter she wants to watch grow up.

To prolong her time with her little girl, the mother decides to go into space, where relativity will slow down time enough to allow her to visit her daughter only one night every seven years.

But the long stretches between visits brings a level of complication to their relationship, as mother and daughter attempt to forge a bond despite the distance of space and time.

The sci-fi special effects of ‘Beautiful Dreamer’ — based on a short story by Ken Liu and adapted by the director and Steven Kelleher — are subtle but effective, as drones float in the sky and spaceships take off in the background.

The film’s real pyrotechnics are emotional, and will linger long after viewing, wrenching your heart well after its final, devastating moments.
