Publication Date October 01, 1998
In a shiny new pickup packed with camping equipment and guitars, and with a $5,000 debt hanging over their heads, Jens and his musician brother, Daniel, take off on an unusual kind of road trip. Little do they know that they are embarking on the longest weekend of their lives -- a weekend in which far more than money is at stake.
A gritty and unforgettable portrait of two young men who are at once ordinary and intensely complicated.
