In winter 2010, student filmmaker Alex Depavloff traveled down the Baja California peninsula in a 15-passenger van with a multi-generational group of students and teachers, as part of Finding the Good Traveling Semester Program. His discoveries as a filmmaker, a student, and a young man from the US is the subject of this reflective film. Encounters with gray whales, a gracious and open people, an unfamiliar culture, and an unearthly landscape helped to shape him as a storyteller, a traveler, and a person.
