When it comes to bands on tour most people think huge buses, sold out arenas and partying but independent touring is a whole different world. Sleeping on floors, days without showering, broken down vans and sinking more and more in debt are common occurrences for this kind of touring.
Winnipeg band High Five Drive is about to embark on their fourth European tour all on their own dime. After losing over $30,000 on their first three tours, their version of success is breaking even - or at least coming close. To help realize this goal they have booked 32 shows in 34 days in ten countries all over Europe.
"The Ones Who Make It Through" documents what it takes to be an independent band on tour on the other side of the world.
