What starts off as a dare turns into a social experiment that becomes a way of life. A young couple creates a fun way to stay connected by disconnecting. Unplugging the phones and being present are the rules. This travel adventure quickly turns into a self-deprecating comedy about bad smartphone habits. Chance encounters and characters met on the road are intertwined throughout.

Is the smartphone addiction phenomenon driving you crazy? Are we relying too much on instant technology? There can be life without these devices, but where is this balance between the tech and physical worlds? Discover how reduction in technology can lead to your serendipitous adventure.

WARNING: Strange things might happen, like conversations and live interactions. You may even develop an insatiable desire for traveling unplugged.
