After college, Eric Saperston bought a 1971 Volkswagen Bus, took his Golden Retriever, Jack, and set out to follow The Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen. While out on the road, he called up some of the most powerful people in the world and asked them out for a cup of coffee. Written by Patrick Jones <patrick@journeyproductions.com>

Quotes

Eric Saperston: [introductory subtitles] "In the superhighway of life, I find myself in the slow lane, lost, confused and desperately searching for purpose and meaning. When I graduated from college, instead of getting a job I bought a 1971 Volkswagen Bus, took my Golden Retriever, Jack, and set out to follow the Grateful Dead and work a ski season in Aspen."

unlike anything I have ever seen before
17 October 2003 | by (Columbia Heights, MN) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely amazing. I have never been effected by a movie like I was after viewing this. I laughed, I cried, I thought long and hard about myself and where I was going in my life. There is such a strong message in this, I recommend this to everyone I talk to. But to attempt to describe it to anyone diminishes the film. It means something different to everyone and it is truly something you need to see. And luckily, it is now available on DVD, so everyone will be able to enjoy this film as much as I have. Demand that your local retailer or video store get this in stock! You will not regret the time you spend with Eric on his journey, nor will you will regret the time you spend after watching it thinking about your own journey in your life and exactly where you want to go. I cannot wait to see what Eric does next.
