American Odyssey - from South Starksboro to São Paulo - from home para casa

 

Some people are known for being eager to leave, wanting to see the world and tasting cultures and flavors never before experienced. Others are content with developing the homestead, working the land and appreciating the juicy fruits that routine can bring to our lives. What happens when two souls, each bearing one of these personalities, come together with love and a willingness to make life happen together? Sixth generation Vermonter Nathan Shepard and fourth generation Japanese-Brazilian Christiane Kokubo will share a glimpse into how they traveled 30,000 miles in a small car that brought their bodies, minds and spirits from a cabin in Addison County to the largest city in the Southern Hemisphere.
