Digital Gym Cinema says
Radio Dreams is a dark comedy that follows a brilliant and misunderstood Iranian writer through his travails at a San Francisco–based satellite radio station as he prepares to broadcast a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band.

Radio Dreams creates the odd yet very real world of PARS-FM - a Farsi-language radio station broadcasting from the heart of San Francisco. The story unfolds over a single day as the station’s program manager, Hamid - a brilliant, misunderstood Iranian writer (played by the “Iranian Bob Dylan” Mohsen Namjoo) - prepares for a triumphant broadcast - a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Meanwhile, Hamid must juggle a dysfunctional mix of on-air talent, station managers, and performers while fending off the owner’s plans to wrest control of the station.

Critic Quotes:
“Contrasting wavelengths of humor and seriousness come through with impressive clarity in director/co-writer Babak Jalali's sophomore outing Radio Dreams.” - Hollywood Reporter

“Royami is the heart of the film: It is his sincere and artistically principled dream of a musical union between East and West, between Metallica and Kabul Dreams, that fuels the film's engine.” - Variety
