Brief synopsis

The Plot Against America imagines an alternate American history told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family living in New Jersey. The story follows the family as they watch the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist, who becomes President and turns the nation towards fascism.
