As the Vietnam War ended, the nation found itself confronted with Watergate, a recession, and lengthening lines at the unemployment office. American Stories: The American Dream - The Bottom Line, Mid 1970s-1980 examines the years spanning the Nixon and Carter administrations when, once again, the American Dream seemed far away. Members of the featured families go off in different directions; one winds up on Nixon's "enemies" list and heads off to the world of high tech, another uses the GI Bill to enter law school, and one, a Korean immigrant, finds that life can be very difficult in New York City.
