Dave Gorman sets off on a journey to see if it's still possible to live in America without giving any money to 'The Man'. He's travelling coast to coast and he's not staying in any chain hotels, eating in any chain restaurants or filling up at any chain gas stations. No, on this journey only independent, Mom and Pop businesses will do. Of course, travelling unchained in a chained world is tricky. When you're tired you can't just stop at a Starbucks and when the tank is running empty you can't just stop at the next gas station. So staying true to the task was always going to be a struggle. But the people facing the real struggle are the people working to keep these businesses alive.
