 American Dreams Deferred examines the various health, social, and economic problems plaguing Caballero's Puerto Rican-American family, and was filmed during his final year of graduate school. It is an ideal film to show to universities and educational institutions because it is about a man achieving his dreams, and simultaneously having to reflect on his family dilemmas. It's a theme that many young people, especially those who are the first to have 'broken the cycle' undertake, oftentimes alone. During the post-Q&A sessions, students of color usually speak about their own experiences being the first to go to college in their families, and communicate feeling motivated to continue with their journey after watching the film. Caballero also encourages them to follow the project on Facebook (by searching for American Dreams Deferred), as a way to stay in touch and continue the conversation.
