The dreams in the viewfinder is the result of a thorough work, methodical and extremely complex, which began in 2001 and was intended to tell of Sergio Leone in all his aspects, not only of the film Master and great artist.

An impressive array, almost all completely new documents and interviews, the work finds, drawings, movies in Super 8, and eyewitness accounts, which create a mosaic of voices and images that reveal the character and genius of Leone, but also his weaknesses, his faults, and those aspects of his personality that only friends, relatives and close associates know.

Revealed from within the defining moments of his path to success, talking about his films and his techniques, but also of his activities as producer and director of advertising. The impact in the world of his work, his sense of 'humor, the importance of friendship and family. It's a relentless ride, with moments of fun and moments of emotion.

Celebrities such as Ennio Morricone, Carlo Verdone, Giuliano Montaldo, Robert de Niro, Eli Wallach, Carlos Aguilar, Sir Christopher Frayling and other, overlapping with the technical and creative people who have collaborated with the great director. The contribution of Tonino Delli Colli, Gabriella Pescucci, Claudio Mancini, Fausto Ancillai and Carlo Leva reinforce the statements of Carla Leone and her three children, who serve as guides in the discovery of a lifetime and a unique career.
