A young man searching for truth in a truthless age. As a globalized world grows into fruition the mixing of cultures, science, and religion has left a void where honest ignorant certainty filled in the past. Belief systems are challenged, and it seems all that is left is the individual experience. Did those who came before us understand and hold something that the modern world has sacrificed in the honor of progress? A young man partakes on a journey alone across North America looking to see if there was a memory, or existence of that sacrifice left. Driving 14,000 miles in 64 days, conducting 50 interviews ranging from billionaires to poor farmers, and members of Gen Z to Centenarians. An answer is found, perhaps it is wrong, but that is for you to decide. In honor of student filmmakers, NASA chose to transmit 14000 Miles (2021), to the Satellite, "Voyager 2", which in turn beamed it to the North Star (a/k/a Polaris). Upon the completion of the transmission of the film, Bjorn received an original flag flown over the United States Capitol Building at the special request of Washington State Senator Patty Murray.
