Synopsis by Alice Day
This series continues to follow several families as they pursue the American Dream. In American Stories: The American Dream - Never Give Up, 1980s-Early '90s, the country is led by Reagan, whose Reaganomics policy is met with mixed reviews. The families meet good and bad fortunes. The man who entered the high tech world during the Nixon administration winds up as the director of Sun Microsystems, and one family who made a fortune lost it when things turned sour in the oil industry. Bad luck also followed the Korean immigrants to L.A., where their store was destroyed during the Rodney King rioting.
