Storyline

Quotes

Ted Koons: You know, you leave Wall Street and you kinda, it's kinda like leaving a beautiful woman, you know you kinda think that you gotta get back into that if you can, because that's some pretty good stuff, right? But the fact is, I never belonged there in the first place. And I was always sort of a pretender.

Decent documentary
17 April 2017 | by ru_thakerSee all my reviews

Very nicely done and easy viewing with decent un overpowering fitting music. Captures subtly the essence & spirit of this part of America with it' big wide open spaces,roads & desserts of the West also where people are drawn to pass through and experience. Richard Grant does a good job quietly and respectfully hosting this with good writing. A nice insight to some of the lives & stories from the Rodeos, the Preacher, the 'White Owls'/retired folk in their RVs, the freight train Vietnam Veterans and especially young Comfrey's and his unknowing destiny. Good viewing overall.
