Synopsis
A story about the (mis)adventures of four young Canadians whose car breaks down while on a road trip to that Mecca of watery malt beverages...America. Things heat up when the guys strike out in seperate directions in search of an alternator for their disabled 1966 Corvair. What begins simply as a twenty-something buddy/road movie quickly evolves into an ensemble piece that takes each character on a journey or self discovery, while exploring the American pop-cultural reference points that these (and by extrapolation, many) Canadians navigate by.
