The American Dream Project documents filmmaker James Marshall and his friend Todd Williams, who embark on an iconic journey across America determined to rediscover the American dream. By traveling from New York to Los Angeles on a shoe-string budget and by meeting people from all walks of life, they piece together an authentic picture of what it really means to be American today. The American Dream Project is a unique and intimate lens on the American dream and the individuals who comprise it.
After traveling nearly 5000 miles, James and Todd reach the Pacific where Surf Legend Mickey Munoz invites them into his home. Mickey shares his philosophy on life while putting them to work and giving the guys a paddleboard lesson to remember.
