Have Dreams, Will Travel (also known as West Texas Lullaby, A West Texas Children's Story, and Dream It Out Loud) is a 2007 drama film set in the 1960s. It was written and directed by Brad Isaacs and stars AnnaSophia Robb and Cayden Boyd.


A boy named Ben Reynolds (Cayden Boyd) lives with his parents, who, for the most part, ignore him. One day, a car accident occurs near their home. Cass Kennington (AnnaSophia Robb), a girl around Ben's age, survives, but her parents both die in the crash. Cass stays in the Reynolds' house while she recovers, and she and Ben develop a relationship. The two soon decide to leave and set off on their own with a suitcase and some money.

Ben and Cass grow closer, and they get "married" while staying at someone's farm. Their journey eventually takes them to Cass' aunt and uncle, where Cass suffers a nervous breakdown and gets taken to a psychiatric ward. Ben breaks into the place at night, and Cass reveals to him that she caused the car accident that killed her parents because she was being abused by her father. Ben convinces her to leave with him, and the couple spends the rest of their lives together.
