Sophie Planque and Jérémy Vaugeois, a couple with a passion for mountains and geography, set themselves the challenge of cycling 28,743 km across the American Continental Divide over a two-year period. The Continental Divide lies at the heart of the American landmass: the Brooks, the Alaskans, the Rockies, the Sierra Madre and the dreaded Andes.
In search of the soul of the continent, it’s with the people who inhabit these mountains, with the mineral and sedimentary elements, that this couple experience a geography of extremes. More than a bicycle trip film, it’s an ode to geography, to the discovery of detail, to the understanding of relief, to a deep love for our planet.
“It’s a trip for lovers that’s more of a grand odyssey than a peaceful honeymoon. Sophie Planque and Jérémy Vaugeois have embarked on an adventure in XXL format. It’s an adventure full of emotions, memorable encounters and sometimes trying unforeseen events”. (Radio France)
