Strangers collide in cramped spaces. Secrets are told to nameless seatmates in the dark of the bus in the middle of the night. Two travelers who have never met before exchange trinkets, unaware of a past that links them. A woman crisscrosses the country by bus, searching for her brother who disappeared in New York City on 9/11. A drunken musician loses his most treasured possession on a deserted West Texas highway. Returning from Iraq, a soldier with PTSD is welcomed home on a broken-down bus. A Katrina refugee flees New Orleans in the company of a dying old man and a lady gambler with a cat.
See America through an unexpected lens. Meet the travelers, drivers, and ticket agents that make up the world of Greyhound buses. Travel through the South and across the West with passengers moving towards, and away from, their intersecting lives. If you want to explore a different America, take a Greyhound. If you can't ride the bus, catch Riding the Dog.
