A grumpy, Czech-born mining engineer and his fast-talking protege join forces with Russian visionaries. They dare to try the impossible - to link the United States and Russia with a 100-kilometre railroad tunnel beneath the Bering Strait. The "Strait Guys" try to convince international governments, corporations, and indigenous tribes to green-light their $100 billion project. They promise that it will become the Panama Canal of the 21st century. As they struggle to keep their "peace, progress, and prosperity" project alive in the face of many obstacles, the Strait Guys leave us wondering: What is really preventing the US and Russia from being connected?
