After losing his job, girlfriend, and life as he knew it all within the span of two short months in early 2013, Tom Edwards decided it was time to live out his lifelong dream and travel the world. After turning to his guitar for income and selling most of his worldly possessions, he set out—along with two friends—with big dreams and grandeur visions of adventures.

Shortly thereafter when the realization was made that the group had nowhere near enough money to support their journey, they found themselves sleeping under bridges, hitchhiking with drug dealers, befriending prostitutes, living as homeless persons, hopping trains, and finding all kinds of other trouble to get into. Then on top of everything else, when tensions arise between the three companions, Edwards wonders if he’ll be forced to go on alone.

Follow the hilarious tale of travel-gone-wrong, debauchery, and adventure in Planes, Trains, and Broken Strings, as a broke indie-musician tries to find his place in the world with the help of a cast of colorful characters he meets along the way.
