On a teenager's wild whim, father and son will embark on a trip from Atlanta, Georgia, to Rouleau, Saskatchewan, in search of the mythical town of Dog River and the meaning of "Corner Gas." Once there, the son, Sam, will reenact a scene from the show. This is the scene:
We intend to make a video documentary of the trip and record the reenactment using two iPhones, two MacBook's, and the family video camera. It may not be high tech, but it will be entertaining. (Examples of other projects we've successfully completed can be viewed at www.nextintheseries.com.)

We go in search of comedy, the history of humor in North America, and, this being a movie about a road trip, we go in search of ourselves. Join us in the adventure.
