David Bell embodies the American dream. He's twenty-eight, has survived office coups, scandals and beaten lesser rivals to become an extremely successful TV exec. The images that flicker across American's screens, the fantasies that enthral viewers, they are of his making.
But David's dream is turning sour, nightmarish. He wants reality, to touch, feel and record what is real. He takes a camera and journeys across America in a mad, roving quest to discover and capture some sense of his own and his country's past, present and future.
