Where the Road Leads is the story of Joan, a recent college graduate, who is tired of the small town lifestyle and strikes out on her own 'adventure' in search of independence and 'greener grasses'. While on her quest for freedom and anonymity she finds that her 'adventure' isn't exactly as she had envisioned it and with that realization her internal struggle begins. People are seldom ever satisfied with what they have; the grass always appears to be 'greener' someplace else and the real treasures in ones life are often overlooked and go unappreciated. This is a fact that Joan comes to realize when she is far from home with no one except an abusive boyfriend and herself to rely on. Where the Road Leads says something about the 'quest' for the better life which is in each of us, and also helps to bring to light what is really important.
