Synopsis

Road movie based on the true story of Lisa Alling, a Russian-born chambermaid who walked from New York City to Siberia. After tending to one of too many drunken revelers welcoming Charles Lindbergh back to Gotham in 1928, Alling sets out, on foot, for her distant birthplace. Following telegraph poles she grabs warmth, food and a bit of romance, whenever they present themselves.
