Few Americans get a better look at their country than the long-haul truck driver, and in this documentary filmmakers Doug Pray and Brad Blondheim travel 21,000 miles through 45 states in order to gain a better understanding of the working-class heroes who keep our nation moving day after day. From the 3:00 a.m. deliver to New York City's Hunt's Point Market to the scenic roadside vistas, this look at the 18-wheeled warriors who hit the road day after day was shot one freeway at a time. After fishing the nation's truck stops for interview subjects, director Pray and producer Brad Blondheim would hit the road with the driver at the wheel in order to find out what the life of a long haul is really all about. As with any road trip, they meet some pretty fascinating people along the way. Whether it's Jesse from Mississippi, Ohio mother Loretta, Native American Ron, or idealistic Idaho steel-driver Bear, each of these seasoned truckers has his or her own unique reason for getting into the trucking business, and a compelling story to share.
