Two television producers and adventure travelers test their skills on an epic adventure, paddling down one of the world’s busiest, most polluted and most sacred rivers, the Ganges in India. Together they journey from its source, a glacier-fed river in the Himalayas, to the Bay of Bengal, where it empties into the Indian Ocean. This hilarious travel journal proceeds rather unconventionally – on foot, cycle-rickshaw, rowboat and anything else that moves. Battling hardships unimaginable to most, the friends test their limits on the planet’s most populated, polluted and holy river. The adventurers provide a colorful testimony to the distress the river endures, and why it merits reprieve as an irreplaceable resource. Directed and written by J.J. Kelley and Josh Thomas.
