Overland is an action/adventure love story set against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Graduating medical student Danny Benson proposes to his long time girlfriend Heather Matheson on a beach in Santa Barbara so they can start their lives together, only to reject his proposal. On the day of his last exam, he receives a Dear John letter from Heather telling him she is in London and about to take off on the Magic Bus ride of her life to travel overland to Kathmandu, Nepal. Distressed to win her back, the only thing he can do is go after her. Two weeks behind, Danny Benson sets out on the adventure of his life to find the girl that left him behind. When they inexplicably meet up, their next course will be a collision with history.
