the thrill of dancing to the new Ronettes song to the life-changing
assassination of a beloved President, American Dreams follows one
family's journey through the joys and pains of America in the '60s
and early '70s. At the epicenter of these earth-shattering times is
Meg Pryor, a style-conscious 15-year-old whose life revolves around
the popular dance show, American Bandstand. While Meg's younger
brother and sister are concerned with simple pursuits, her older
brother, Will, is fighting to follow his dreams instead of his
father's. And unbeknownst to the kids, their parents are struggling
to define their own evolving relationship as partners, parents and
people. Meanwhile, the world swirls around them — a vibrant
combination of rock and roll, equal rights and soon, war. How will
the changing times change this American family?
