Most of us probably think that wealth or love is the key to freedom. Hese, a Finn in his forties, has something different in mind. Something much more practical and at the same time much more absurd. With the help of his friends he wants to fix a Cannonball truck wreck, to build a home on top of it and to drive it from Wasilla, Alaska to Vancouver Island in Canada.
ALCAN HIGHWAY is a film diary of a man making his dream come true.
A road movie about freedom and friendship.
