S1: 5x45' (ENG, GER, FRE), S2: 5x45' (ENG, GER, FRE)

A risky expedition along thoroughfares that harbor mortal danger for those who use them or live on them.

They run through deserts, ice and snow, deep in the jungle, along water and over mountains: the world’s most dangerous roads. Many risk their lives along these roads. Yet for lack of alternative routes, locals continue to use them for transportation. This series tells stories that take place along the routes, of the people who live along them and for whom these are part and parcel of their personal destiny.

The landscapes through which these routes wind are unique and exert their never-ending fascination even on regular travelers. “Hot Roads – The World’s Most Dangerous Roads” accompanies people on adventures where the journey is its own reward. The filmmakers tag along in the driver’s seat of trucks, on the rear benches of busses and in the passenger seat of regular cars to experience the danger and beauty these roads offer from different perspectives – through the windshield and in the rear-view mirror simultaneously.
