A MAN, A DOG, A PICKUP TRUCK


August Zirner on a journey across America, from New York City to San Francisco. Travelling the country in the footsteps of the author John Steinbeck, Zirner is in search of the American soul. As an American who has lived in Europe for 40 years, he is a stranger in his own country. Accompanied by his dog, Betsy, he crosses paths with a wide variety of people, asking both them and himself: What defines today’s America?
