Synopsis by Hal Erickson
First telecast April 3, 1987,Destination: America is a "search for oneself" opus, spiced up with a bit of mystery and intrigue. Bruce Greenwood plays the disenfranchised son of billionaire Rip Torn. Unable to see eye to eye with his father, Greenwood takes to the road, hoping to find some purpose in life. Along the way, he becomes mixed up in the plight of battered wife Corinne Bohrer. Things really begin to heat up when Bruce's father is murdered by a serial killer. The topheavy nature of the plotline gives away the fact that Destination: America was intended as the pilot for a TV series.
