The World May Be Shutdown but the Road is Always Open.  Like many, our “Driver” played by Mare Costello, is in the middle of nowhere and somewhere fumbling through each day since March 6th, 2020 when her life and so many others began to unravel because of a microscopic killer and a country divided with no real leader.  Our journey begins in Upper Peninsula, MI where our Driver's anguish makes living in her own skin unbearable.  Out of sheer frustration she makes a snap decision that catapults her on a cross country ride with her Terrier mix rescue dog “Dog,” played by newcomer Skittles.  The driver’s hopelessness and anxiety are slowly drawn out the further and further they enter the  bigness of the American landscape.
