A film about the universal human search for meaning, set in a high-stakes wilderness adventure on BMW GS off-road motorcycles. Six men—father, sons and friends—set off as rookies through the backcountry of Colorado, exploring the universal longing for meaning, the loss of story in the postmodern world and how the secret to life is discovered “only in a larger story.”

  • looks to be a finely crafted film

    • Agreed. Would love to seat back in a movie threater and watch some adv moto.

    Let me put this in the clearest possible terms. John Eldredge went on the 700 Club and other religious programs and actually promoted this disaster of a movie honestly. I guess this is why the 70-something church ladies were at the showing I attended. I don’t typically feel the need to research the filmmakers before going to a movie because generally there are critic reviews and other information plugged into the promotional effort.

    When I went on their “Partners” page (which has since been taken down because of the complaints they received from some or ALL of these suppliers) and saw all the great organizations who were in one way or another supporting this film and then Charley Boorman pops up with his wonderful smile explaining how cool this was – i figured this should be a great motorcycling movie, right? It turns out many (ALL?) of these “partners” were also duped and are none too happy about it.

    While the filmmakers claim in their open letter “apology” about how some in the riding community may have mistakenly thought this was going to be about motorcycling – they claim they never HID their true motives. This, of course, is utter nonsense. Feel free to copy and paste this link to the 700 club interview that Padre did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naUqUxhUqt at about 9:20 into the interview this huckster gleefully lets loose this little gem (just one day before the one night showing of the sham that has NO reviews prior to the showing – he officially lets the cat out of the bag):
    “…the cool part of this story is that we’ve got all kinds of unbelievers who are coming to this show on Thursday night … because of the motorcycles, Colorado, adventure – and they’re going to get a taste of the Kingdom of God.”
    Now I don’t know about you but I don’t see how there could be a clearer admission of the intentional deceit foisted upon the riding community.
    So when they claim in their “apology” here: http://www.astoryfilm.com/openletter that somehow we must not have been paying close enough attention they are simply further perpetuating this scam.

    Yes, they’re offering refunds – and why not, it beats getting sued every time. What about the tens of thousands of hours of our lives we won’t get back? What about the cost of gas, hotels, tolls, dinners, and everything else that were tacked on to the cost of being tricked into seeing this silly little movie?

    Did anybody get hurt or worse, killed because they were going to see a movie that they were only going to because they were duped?

    It would be great to see an article following up on what many of us feel was an intentionally deceitful, arrogand, and misguided attempt to “save” us – or something?
    All of the websites that promoted this without being given the entire picture could easily make this right by doing some follow up to explain how this kind of nonsense should never be accepted.
