In 2008, the wheels feel off the global economy, wiping out Patrick Lovell's American Dream just as it was coming to fruition. Lovell was swept up in an economic avalanche that nearly destroyed everything he'd been building for the previous decade. His world was turned upside-down and it would take everything he had to survive and keep his family intact. Several years later, he manifested the opportunity to go on a journey in an attempt to find out what happened to the American Dream. As the journey unfolds, its revealed that America no longer functions as a democracy, that capitalism is an inside rigged con, and the American Dream is effectively dead. Like millions, Lovell is now faced with the perplexing dilemma of what can be done to turn it all around.
