Traveling across the former Soviet Union is a challenge at the best of times—doing so in a dilapidated VW is just that muchmore of an adventureA chance job offer at a timber yard in Estonia gives Thom and his old pal Jo a taste for the unknown.

SoMoreTraveling across the former Soviet Union is a challenge at the best of times—doing so in a dilapidated VW is just that much more of an adventureA chance job offer at a timber yard in Estonia gives Thom and his old pal Jo a taste for the unknown. So when Uncle Tony asks them to drive to Vladivostok for another job, they can’t think of a good reason why not.

The result is a classic caper across the former Soviet Union in Max, a rusty old VW camper. Knowing little of the language or the geography ahead, they embark on probably the longest commute ever, encountering corrupt officials, film star mechanics, and over-friendly gangsters.

Far off the tourist trail, they bear witness to the collapse of one nation and the birth of a new one during the free-for-all that was Russia in the 1990s.
