Synopsis: ‚ÄčAs the US deals with civil unrest and a toxic political climate in 2017, “Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity” takes a look back to the turbulent social upheaval of the early 1970s and follows an idealistic writer and his soon-to-be-married photographer friend as they set out to find their purpose via a terrifying road trip across the Sahara Desert. What started out as two young Kansas kids setting out to find themselves traveling around Europe in late 1970, turned to disillusionment and danger. If they were looking for experiences, Ewert and Russell certainly found them.
