Open Season considers some of the founding heroes and myths of the American Frontier, seen against a contemporary landscape. The people we encounter struggle for meaning in an environment that often seems hostile to the search. At the boyhood home of Davy Crockett, we encounter his modern-day apologist; across the street, a small businessman, selling "Davy Dogs", tries to keep a failing store afloat. From here, we move across America, to visit others on the margins of the American Dream.

Cette vidéo fait suivre dans un cadre contemporain, les héros et les mythes fondateurs de la Frontière américaine. Les gens qui y sont présentés persistent à vouloir donner un sens à un environnement pourtant hostile à leur quête. Sur les lieux de l'enfance de Davy Crockett, on découvre aujourd'hui son défenseur moderne; de l'autre côté de la rue, un petit homme d'affaire vend des Davy Dogs afin de sauver son commerce en péril. De là, nous traversons l'Amérique à la rencontre de personnages qui vivent en marge du rêve amércain.
