In this documentary, a group of Americans who have joined a bus tour of Europe run by Globus Gateway are followed for the two weeks the group traveled around the continent, debarking at regular intervals at museums, historic buildings, and restaurants. Despite the temptation to poke fun at this "lazy" way to see the sights and the people who choose it, the filmmakers chose to feature a more sympathetic and humane perspective, and another story begins to emerge which illustrates the point of view of its residents that Europe is increasingly beginning to look like an enormous theme park especially designed for tourists.
