"From one hotel to another, from the heart of Manhattan to the depths of Death Valley, the filmmaker reflects on modern America. In 'road movie' style, with improvised encounters, the filmmaker examines the American myth and pounders the fate of Uncle Sam's country in the media age. The land of the brave is no longer the land of Kennedy, Martin Luther King and all the 60s idealists. Refusing to pass final judgement on the American dream, the filmmaker, at the end of her travels, sees some sign of new hope."
