Free Ride

Can you travel the world relying on just your ingenuity and the kindness of strangers? One man thinks it's possible. Adventurer, survivalist and green enthusiast Rob Greenfield is about to embark on an epic journey with a truly audacious plan – to trek across South America with no money. This means no cash, no credit cards and nothing set up in advance of his arrival in Rio de Janeiro.

Travelling with him will be filmmaker James Levelle, documenting every step of their journey together and attempting to live by Rob’s FREE RIDE philosophy. Rob and James have given themselves 72 days to cross over 9,000km – just how far will they get without a dime to their names?
