Eva is a strong-willed, restless 16-year-old girl who lives with her mother, her younger sister and their cat, but desperately wants to move in with her estranged father. Clinging onto him as he goes through a second adolescence, she balances between the tenderness and sensitivity of teenage life and the ruthlessness of the adult world.
Bathed in a richly textured imagery and soaked in raw sensitivity, I HAVE ELECTRIC DREAMS captures the thin line between love and hate, in a world where aggression and rage intertwined with the vertigo of female sexual awakening.
