"There are lots of messages (in this movie) and all ages will pick up a different message," explained Dakota. "One of the main messages is that everybody has a dream and everybody has goals. What I liked about the title Dreamer is that every single person (even the bad guy) has a dream - Even the horse (Soñador which means dreamer in Spanish) has a dream. That makes you realize even more that every person that you see has a vision of what they want to be."
"My character dreams of being around horses with her father, to see her horse, Soñador, race to victory, and most of all, to help her family," described Dakota. Cale's dreams turn into an unwavering faith in Soñador. It's that faith that causes her father (with a little encouragement by his wife and support from his Pop) to ignore his better judgment and put everything he has into rehabilitating the injured filly.
