FROM THIS EPISODE

Stories of a typically American kind of hero: the person who stands up alone for what's right, and damn the consequences. In one story, a rich developer arrives in a small town in Texas. In a sense, his real estate company tries to destroy the town in order to save it. One man leads the charge against him. And other stories.
