The project consists of LaBeouf and fellow collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner periodically tweeting out their coordinates and then hitching a ride with whoever reaches the group first — to anywhere that person wants. The month-long road trip throughout the U.S. began on May 23 and ended on June 23.
