It's 1932 and a new star has risen from the east, arching toward Los Angeles. A man, woman and child set off by rail from Chicago to follow the star. Along the way they'll meet figures from the American imagination who make us the people we are today: Woody Guthrie, Clark Kent, Al Capone, Babe Ruth, and more. And when the three find their fates, the stars that guide us all will be forever changed.
