Greyhound, One-Way Ticket


Nathalie Borgers & Jennifer Levy-Lunt

For Sheila and her five children, for Robert who is homeless, Tina who is in love, Jeremy and John, teenage bank robbers, the Greyhound bus leaving New York for the West is a ticket to a new life. Whether free or pursued by the law, all leave everything behind in the hope that elsewhere the grass will be greener. On the road, over a distance of 2500 miles, each traveler in his own way makes us discover what the American dream means today for the most disfavored.
