Last week, Hillary Clinton launched her bid for president saying she hopes to be a champion for "everyday Americans." Now, a new movie, filmed in documentary style, shows us what the lives of those everyday Americans is really like.

Below Dreams follows three twenty-somethings — a former convict, a jobless graduate and a single mother of four — as they seek to make their way in New Orleans without enough money or resources to better their lives.

The film, directed by newcomer Garrett Bradley, premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and opens in select theaters in Los Angeles (April 10) and New York (April 17) before dropping on iTunes and VOD on April 21.
