SYNOPSIS

Go behind the curtains of the most unlikely kingdom on earth. This is China's Dwarves Empires, where little people stand tall. Or do they? Join them on a journey in the pursuit of dreams and a life of happiness, against all odds.

A millionaire wanted to create a utopia for little people in China. A land where they could live and work among themselves, away from the discrimination of mainstream society. And so the ‘Dwarves Empire’ was born. This is an unlikely theme park where dozens of little people reside and perform for anyone who pays a US$16 entrance fee. Tourists can enjoy a fantasy world where little people work in mushroom houses, dress in fairy tale costumes and put on a variety of performances. 

This observational documentary chronicles the journeys of a few employees at a pivotal point in their lives. A change of heart, a secret escape, a struggle to find true love and a venture beyond the confines of the ‘Dwarves Empire’ lead to vastly different experiences. Connected by a will to pursue their dreams and a life of happiness, these little people take their chances in an uncertain world. For some, their destinies are forever changed. ‘Little People Big Dreams’ explores the cost of prejudice and the shades of modern-day morality.
