The Strait Guys

Whatever happened to that monumental dream to finally connect the USA and Russia across the Bering Strait? Ask the passionate team of seniors known as the “Strait Guys”, who have been fighting for decades to convince international governments, corporations, and indigenous tribes to greenlight their $100 billion railway project which promises to become the Panama Canal of the 21st century. As they struggle to keep their “peace, progress, and prosperity” project alive, the Strait Guys leave us wondering: What is really preventing us from being connected?
