Plan 9 from Syracuse documents all the events surrounding Dacko's historical trek across the United States of America. In an ultimate example of reality filmmaking, every piece of footage is placed in chronological order as the events of Plan 9 from Syracuse are shown exactly as they happened.
Watch as one man fights, with pure heart and determination, through blizzards, sandstorms, injuries, and an uncertain outcome.
