According to the official synopsis — Dreamin´ Wild is an album that the brothers Donnie (Casey Affleck) and Joe (Walton Goggins) Emerson recorded as teenagers in 1979 without much commercial success.

But Matt’s passion for the brothers’ music crashes into the ghosts of musical prodigy Donnie’s past and the complexities of his present life as a father and struggling business owner with his wife, Nancy (Zooey Deschanel). Music, love, family, guilt, and the unforeseen burden of resurfaced dreams intertwine in this captivating true story.
