While driving from South Los Angeles to Washington DC, the bus takes the Pasadena Freeway north from downtown LA. This freeway ends in Pasadena and is not the way one would travel across the country. Furthermore, a bus of this size would not be permitted on this freeway. See more »
I think as we prepare to go on this journey; it might be appropriate to have a prayer.
Dear Lord, we ask you to...
[running onto the bus]
Damn, I'm glad ya'll ain't left. I didn't think I was ever goin' to...
Hey; CP Time, we tryin' to have a prayer here!

This is the journey of a bus that is worth getting on.
We join the bus ride with a group of Black Americans as they journey to the Million Man March. During this journey, the camera enters the soul and beliefs of each character that represents a whole spectrum of the Black community. Their conversations range from the politics to the religions and beyond their inner-self . Each one finding new meaning to their life and destiny. Reggie's preachy but fascinating script is handled masterfully by the genius Spike Lee.
