From WNET:

"This series is a thorough examination of the sense of values of a number of Americans, as well as the opinions of experts on what values should guide Americans as they form opinions on foreign policy, national domestic issues, inter-personal relations and basic philosophy.

The series of interviews is based on the assumption that culture is an important factor is determining behavior, and that culture stems from a people’s sense of what is desirable, good or right; that is, its sense of values.

The series is designed to help the viewer to consider how values affect living, as well as the alternatives to is present sense of values."
