Plot Summary
Documentary filmmaker Louis Schwartzberg embarks on a massive road trip through the United States to explore the nation's majestic landscape and learn more about the people who inhabit it.

Despite the individuality of the people, though, they are united by common aspirations, and by their feelings for the country they call home.
