The adventurous journey of two friends by boat and bus around the world and almost without money. They will record 130 songs with over 200 musicians from 31 countries. The result is a rousing soundtrack about friendship, music and freedom. During their four and a half year journey, the two friends Ben and Hannes cover more than 75,000 kilometres in a small sailing boat and later in an old school bus, visiting 31 countries, recording 130 songs and filming almost 1500 hours of video material.
The adventure begins on the Solomon Islands. Here they find a small sailing boat from the seventies, which they buy cheaply from a failed circumnavigator. Although they cannot sail at all, they set off for Papua New Guinea and sail via Australia and South East Asia to India. This is where the film begins, describing Ben and Hannes journey through India, Africa, South America, the Caribbean and North America.
In Florida the two adventurers find an old school bus which they convert into a camper. With their ‘Magic Bus’ they travel through the USA to Canada and back to the boat in Florida.
