A young man, Jackson “Jake” Ferry, born into a privileged New York family, loses them in a car accident. Young and wealthy, he needs to justify his existence during The Great Depression. Using his carpentry skills, Jake drives around the Gulf of Mexico, working on building projects with his peculiar friend and partner from Florida, Chin, a man who has cheerfully abandoned his family in favor of an adventure. Together, they travel an amazing road trip, helping poor folks along the way, repairing their homes and their lives. Eventually, Jake lands in Galveston, where he stays to help rebuild the island after their first Great Flood.
This road trip changes everyone it touches.
