Taig Lauren presents one woman's journey to find what makes an American. But where does this journey begin? History? Personal experience? Culture? Politics? Religion? As she travels west, to the land of tomorrow, she digs further into the past where she meets unlikely strangers, becomes part of the nation's origin stories and eventually finds the dark heart of it all. Searchers explores the traumas of the past and the possibilities of the future through characters, poetry and rock'n'roll and asks if the answers to our future are in a past we've forgotten or don't want to remember.
