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.
