In 2006, Matt VanDyke, a timid 27 year old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, left home in Baltimore and set off on a self-described “crash course in manhood”. He bought a motorcycle and a video camera and began a three year trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East. While traveling, he struck up an unlikely friendship with a Libyan hippie, and when revolution broke out in Libya, Matt joined his friend in the fight against Dictator Gaddafi. Matt fought in and filmed the war until he was captured by Gaddafi forces and held in solitary confinement for six months. Film tells harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s struggle for political revolution and personal transformation.
