Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
A true love story filmed over four-years, across 32 countries by one man on a bicycle. Tom is all set for a 9–5 career in IT – but at 23 he can’t help wondering whether there’s more to life. So he decided to leave behind everything he knew and set off on the ultimate adventure: cycling around the world without maps or guidebooks. Despite his lack of experience (in both long-distance cycling and filmmaking) Tom cycles and camps across three continents and captures every aspect of his road-trip, encountering a vivid cast of friends and foes. But eight months into his ride and alone in the mountains during a bitter Caucasian winter, he meets Tenny – a feisty Iranian-Armenian who would change the course of his journey and then his life. Struggling to keep his dream alive, Tom convinces Tenny to get on a bicycle and join him. But when things don’t go to plan, he is forced to continue riding alone. His decisions lead him to the depths of the Sahara desert, where – amid challenges unimaginable – he catches a glimpse of the answer he set out to find. Janapar – named after the Armenian word for journey – is an honest and life-affirming story. Combining stunning photography, skillful editing and an evocative soundtrack, it captures the spirit of a true adventurer who discovers what he’s looking for when he least expected it.
Wonderfully intriguing story of adventure and love.
Made me want to get on my bike and just keep going, loved it.
Inspiring tale of love, life and adventure!!!
Inspiring, not just for cyclists.
Beautiful, romantic, and inspiring film not only about cycling and exploration, but also about how traveling can contribute to human and emotional growth. Highly recommended!
