Two Irish Immigrant musicians, The Black Donnellys, embark on a quest to set a Guinness World Record playing 60 shows in ALL 50 states in just 35 days! Racing against the clock, they examine the pursuit of the American Dream from an immigrant’s perspective and how music connects us all. Will they make it?
