A journey on the trail of Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, H.D. Thoreau, Jack London, Herman Melville and Chris McCandless (Into the Wild), in a thrilling literary adventure from the Alps to Alaska. The writer Paolo Cognetti – accompanied by his friend Nicola Magrin, traveller and illustrator – will take us on a voyage exploring mankind and nature, retracing the words of some of the great masters of American literature and crossing places associated with them, in search of a new existential frontier for man and his coexistence with the environment. Using images filmed along the way and fragments of dialogue between the two friends, the film is also a personal journey back in time for Cognetti, to discover his roots as a writer and a man; because the places on the route recall great masters whose value has been much more than merely literary in his life.
