Halfway through the journey, we find the road-trippers in Washington D.C., where they interview Brittan Heller, a human rights attorney. Brittan explains her "connect-by-dots" approach to career-building, which starts off with knowing what you're passionate about and taking small steps grounded in conviction. This philosophy echoes with Ed, who realizes that every experience has the potential to shape him—regardless if he knows his final destination. Later, the road-trippers make their way to Philadelphia,... [see more] where they interview Sal Donato, a racecar-building mechanic who owns his own shop. As a first-generation American, Sal exudes a hard-working, up-by-the-bootstraps mentality, which Olivia can relate to as the daughter of immigrants. Olivia leaves the interview feeling inspired by Sal's success story and the unquestionable joy he derives from his work. Later, after stopping to enjoy Philly Cheesesteaks, the team interviews Christine Borelli and Stacey Cruise, two women who revitalized a crime-ridden school by using compassion instead of punishment. Tele'jon is particularly moved by the school's transformation and leaves the conversation feeling fired up about creating institutional change in education.
This documentary series is literally and figuratively driven by twenty-somethings. Soon-to-be college graduates (from the U.S. , Canada and the U.K.) criss-cross the country in three mechanically unsound RVs interviewing people from all walks of life to get their stories - how they got to where they are - to see how these stories might provide some insight and guidance as the students try to define their own roads in life.
