Uly gets a good job—honest work maintaining utility poles, but he has to move from Atlanta to south Georgia.
Meanwhile, he fails to transition the on-again, off-again relationship with Rachel to full-time long-distance.
On the job, hard work isn’t the problem—you know it’s the boss’s fault—Uly stomps away in a huff. But here’s a pro tip: Don’t quit your job on a work trip when the boss is your ride.
Desperate, on foot, phone dying, and a few dollars from penniless in the hot summer heat, Uly buys a ticket for an off-brand bus back to Atlanta.
That’s when things go from bad to strange. For Uly it’s a journey of personal discovery and spiritual growth as much as it is a long detour.
Faith, perseverance, loyalty, and generosity wrestle with fear, injury, humiliation, and Uly’s own cluelessness in this contemporary, Southern odyssey.
