Inspired by a real-life group of Iranian Metallica fans, Radio Dreams follows Hamid Royani, an Iranian writer turned radio station manager now living in California. Though Hamid is masterfully eloquent in his native tongue, in America he finds himself struggling to communicate as he strives to realize his vision of bringing together Afghan rock band Kabul Dreams and metal legends Metallica for an on-air jam session.
