Synopsis: Nineteen years after his father's murder, Haroon Rizwan returns to the country of his birth to revisit his family home. Haunted alternately by nightmare visions of his father's death and the frustrating inability to remember exactly what happened, Haroon decides to search deeper within himself for answers. The visions take him back to that fateful year, 1983, and to Abdul, the Rizwans' servant boy. As Haroon relives his childhood one troubled by his father's abusive behaviour towards his mother he comes to realize that Abdul's past, with its undertones of violence, counterpoints his own.Without Dreams is the story of two boys growing up in a household beset by violence in a country sharply divided along ethnic and class lines. Like estranged brothers, Haroon and Abdul travel towards a common destiny, till a terrifying moment changes their lives for ever.
