Five Australian friends attempt to cycle from Oklahoma to California in honour of the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s. This is a story of adventure, humanity, and America today, told through the lens of Steinbeck's Pulitzer prize-winning novel, The Grapes of Wrath. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. They also explore whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream.
