Route One USA

Route One USA

Director Robert Kramer returns to the USA after having spent several years abroad. Together with a friend (portrayed by actor Paul McIsaac) they decide to explore the vast American mainland, meeting all sorts of different characters along the way. Similar to the way a long journey changes us, the process of returning and adapting to the changes having occurred during our absence can be equally determining. A hybrid of fiction and documentary, Route One USA takes a look at Reagan’s America and the 1980s through the eyes of an external observer, trying to comprehend politics and behaviors that went on to become highly popular and were expected to define the country’s course over the following years.
