There is the American Dream, and there are Americans Dreaming. Each generation of them does it differently. And Individuals must come to terms with whomever they are and where they want to go with themselves, and with others.

Growing up is hard for most people, especially if you have dreams that go beyond a comfortable, conformist life.

"American Dreaming" is the story of how a boy became a man, and how his limited horizons gradually broaden through toil and trouble. The change is dramatic from hotrodding and menial jobs to the life of the mind and revolution. Spanning three continents, his spiritual travels bring him to self-knowledge and to the meaning of love.
