Johan Nivens is a young filmmaker with unrelenting wanderlust and a penchant for adventure.

Johan Nivens has come to the end of his twenties and life looks messier than ever. Societal pressures have mounted, scorched his wits, and turned a relationship stale. After breaking up with his long-time girlfriend and moving back home to live with his father, Johan finds hope in a fiery new romance, but not without all the booze and confusion induced by a full restart.

Despite the love affair, Johan is haunted by his abandoned dreams and decides that it’s time to hit the road to seek concrete answers in an ultimate journey of self discovery. From Hollywood to the high peaks of Colorado, across the Atlantic to Paris, his adventure is narrated with humorous anecdotes and wholehearted introspection.
