Open Season considers some of the founding heroes and myths of the American frontier, set within a contemporary landscape. The people we encounter persist in giving sense to their environment which often seems hostile to their concerns. At the boyhood home of Davy Crockett, we encounter his modern day advocate; across the street is a small businesman who sells "Davy Dogs" and tries to keep a failing business afloat. From here, we move across America meeting others who live on the edge of the American dream.
