In 2006, Matt VanDyke, a timid 26-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, left home in Baltimore and set off on a self-described “crash course in manhood.” He bought a motorcycle and a video camera and began a multi-year, 35,000-mile motorcycle trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East. With a gun in one hand and a camera in the other, Matt fought in – and filmed – the war until he was captured by Gaddafi’s forces and held in solitary confinement for six months. Two-time Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s search for political revolution and personal transformation.
