The Premise

American Mongrel explores not only the western United States, but the very essence of the American Dream, and how it differs for everyone who calls this great country home. Join three characters — strangers at first — on a journey as they confront their own pasts, explore the present, and ponder their future.

Marcos, Johnny, and Janice are forced to navigate their differences, shortcomings and secrets as they come closer to what they each fear most… the past, love, acceptance. The experience of the road, long conversations with one another and meeting unique people along the way, reveals the possibility of profound change.
