“A bittersweet slice of countercultural anthropology, in the tradition
of Studs Terkel, bursting with flavor to savor.”

~Paul Krassner, author of ‘Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut’

This is the gritty reality of a year on the road, with little money, and no back up plan.

One American couple, with $180, their dog and turtle, take to road searching for a place to call home and a glimmer of hope.

They survived by working odd jobs found on Craigslist and the kindness of strangers. They slept on floors, sofas, in plush guest rooms, cheap motels, and their car, and they did it for a year straight!  They were searching for answers.

Shane and Amy Bugbee documented creatives, scholars, madmen, and all points in between in a quest to find answers and understanding in a world that seemed less and less welcoming of individuality.  They asked about the freedom of artistic expression and speech, the soul of faith, and the purpose of the “American Way”.

“This was a journey we never expected, it would have killed most people, it nearly killed us.” - Shane Bugbee
