Katy and John had only known each other a year when they set off on an 18,000 mile motorcycle trip from Europe to Japan, roughing it through Russia and off-roading over Central Asia and Mongolia.
They met on a website and discovered that they shared a similar viewpoint on travel; to meet people, wild camp and to use the equipment they already had. Planning took place on dummy runs to Scotland and Wales and between each other’s homes which were over 200 miles apart.
With no return journey booked the plan was to ride east travelling on old, cheap and high-mileage motorbikes with army-surplus gear and second hand luggage into a world unknown to them.
The film documents their relationship and the motorcycle breakdowns which lead them to the most ingenious and generous people.
