       Additional Information  
      It’s 1932 and a new star has risen from the east, arching toward Los Angeles.

    A man, woman and child set off by rail from Chicago to follow the star.

    Along the way they’ll meet figures from the pantheon of the American imagination — figures who make us the people we are today: Woody Guthrie, Clark Kent, Al Capone, Babe Ruth, the Wizard of Oz and the ghost of Abner Doubleday.

    And when the three find their fates, the stars that guide us all will be forever changed.
