The American Dream is more of a dream now than ever before. The rising costs of tuition today have the students enslaved to corporate interest, forcing them into undervalued employment as soon as they throw their caps into the air. Not unlike serfdom in the middle ages, the prohibitive costs of a secondary education is nothing short of financial slavery.
“American Dream” is set within a private university backdrop, which is a subculture within our society. A subculture that is protected and insular, allowing for tiny micro economies to thrive. The universities financial dominance within their communities provides protection, which allows for drugs and crimes to flourish. This is a direct result of the prohibitive costs associated with making it through a four to eight year education.
“American Dream” is the story of Justin Goodbread, who does whatever it takes to make his dream a reality.
