Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Teenager Tom Parsegian (John Denos) falls in love with a Japanese girl, Ann Murakoshi Caroline Barrett. Though both Tom and Ann's families oppose the union, true love cuts through any and all racial barriers. For a film about racial tolerance, Dreams of Glass is surprisingly devoid of genuine Asian actors; one of the few exceptions is Pat Li, playing the heroine's mother. For fans of obscure 1960s rock groups, the film features a solo by The Smokestack Lightnin'. Produced independently, Dreams of Glass was picked up for distribution by Universal.
