“Chasing Ponies/Ameerika Suvi” is a road movie about life. It is loosely based on the adventures of real Eastern European university students selling books door to door in United States. This movie touches us all, as summer work in the US has become something of a phenomenon among students in Europe – everyone knows someone who has spent a summer in USA – some experiences good, some not so good, each a story in it’s own right.
