At 23 years old, Avery had achieved the things expected of her. An education that led her nowhere, a dead-end job that paid the bills and a boyfriend her parents loved. When everything fell apart and her mental illness got the best of her, she gave up all that she had worked for and left home in a beaten-up car.
Together with her two dogs, savings that were quickly draining and a heart full of anxiety, Avery left behind a life of familiarity for a life on the road. Through endless miles of driving and hiking, she finds that the soul can heal, and that happiness can be found in the most unexpected places. In the beautiful embrace of nature, she discovers what it feels like to be free, realizes the burdens and the marvels of this privilege, and breaks the chains of the things that once held her back.
As she welcomes some of the most breath-taking sights in Europe, she learns the hardship of living in a car and the weight of solitude, the strength it takes to survive out in the wild and the benefits it can give to the brave. Along the way, she comes to terms with her past and makes new friends, falls in love and is faced with heart-breaking loss.
