What we consume has become the defining feature of our lives: our economies live or die by spending, we are treated more as consumers than workers and even public services are presented to us as products in a supermarket.

This epic narrative tells America’s story through the voices of those who lived it—Presidents and farmers, mothers and children, settlers and soldiers, slaves and Native Americans. The series celebrates the country’s achievements but also examines its paradoxes by investigating three abiding themes of American life: empire, liberty, and faith. These first 30 episodes start with the Native Americans, who arrived from Asia around 15,000 years ago. In a fascinating journey that takes in the impact of Columbus, the founding of Puritan New England, the Declaration of Independence, the slave trade, and the forced relocation of the Indians, Reynolds shows how the U.S. expanded to cover a whole continent, laying the foundations of a superpower—if the country could stay united. And that seemed a big "if" in 1861 as the conflicts over liberty and slavery brought America to the brink of Civil War.

The pleasures of food, of the erotic, of family - form the very fabric of our emotional lives. And smell is anessential emotional trigger. There is more truth to call our sense of smell our sense of desire because it springs our passions. Smell moves us, subliminally and profoundly. It moves us to act and do things we are wholly unaware of. It enriches our lives, gives us with unspeakable joys. All along this feature-length documentary, central storylines take us into the world of smell. Many of them have the suspense, death-defying risk and insanity of an ultimate quest while others, are moments of pure poetry.
