Fluidly lensed docu follows three indie folk bands - Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Tennessee's Old Crow Medicine Show and Britain's Mumford & Sons - as they team for a 2011 tour, traveling to six cities, from Oakland to New Orleans, aboard an antique train. When the clickety-clack rhythm of train wheels speeding along a railroad track is joined by the melodic sounds of three bands, the result is a magical musical railway revival across the American landscape that both Woody Guthrie and John Steinbeck would be proud of. Filmmaker Emmett Malloy is onboard to capture the bands as they come together, share stories and revel in the glory of making music
