Simply, the road is life. It represents life and journeys both spiritually and physically. For Sal, the road leads away from his symbolic death in the city– a life of rule, regulation, pressure to conform, work and marriage. The road takes Sal from traditional American life to a life that rejects all notions of authority and rule and is the escape from the responsibilities of the systematic world. We follow a journey that explores this underbelly of American culture full of sex, drugs, and lost youth, a part of America that was truly off the map.
