1. A young bluegrass band is well loved in their home state of North Carolina.
    Where do they go on their first tour?
    Japan.

    On a journey that blurs the cultural divide between East and West, three young musicians travel across the world to discover that the twang of the banjo needs no translation.

    While performing at a bluegrass festival, jamming with fiddle virtuosos, and touring by bullet train, the band finds that the traditions rooted in their home state have far-reaching branches.
