About the series:
Leon is a man with a mission. Counting solely on the kindness of strangers for food, shelter, and fuel, he travels around the world on a vintage motorcycle (Kindness One) looking for the good in humanity. This is an uplifting social experiment that examines the nature of generosity and gives glimpses into the hearts of some truly selfless people. It gives one real hope in a world where too often greed is revered as a virtue and caring as a liability.
Episode 1: With a tank full of gas donated by a would-be traveler, Leon and Kindness One leave LA and try their luck in Sin City before finding a fellow Brit in an out-of-the-way Western town in Colorado. Leon spends a day on a ranch and then spends the night sleeping on the streets of Pittsburgh with a homeless man and his friends.
The entire series is available for on-demand viewing through Amazon Prime (account required).
