Paul asks a woman running a Christian themed store if America were a person, would they be considered a good Christian before he and Mister Basquali return to their hotel room and debate the overwhelming presence of religion and spirituality in their exploits across the nation. Mister Basquali, from the bathtub, reveals that a terrible car accident that should have killed him was one reason that his own perspective on the matter changed.
As children, British actor Paul Blackthorne and Australian photographer Mister Basquali both fell in love with America. Later they each fulfilled their dream to live there, but after two wars, a near economic collapse, and uncertainty about the country's direction, these two expats began to have doubts—was America still the great place they once dreamed of?
They drive across America to find out, interviewing random people about issues that affect and confront us all. From the ghetto to the gun show, the courthouse to the cattle yard, they are touched by the wisdom and insight of the people they meet.
This American Journey is a cinematic postcard from the people to the people, teaching us that hearts can be healed at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected places.
