Welsh musician Gruff Rhys documents his latest musical road trip, retracing the fantastical adventure of his 18th Century relative, the explorer John Evans.

In search of a lost tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans, John Evans left Wales for America in 1792 with only a $1.75 in his pocket. Alone and without a horse, he walked into the wilderness of the Great Plains and reappeared 7 years later as Don Juan Evans having changed the shape of American history.

Fiction, fact, fantasy, myth and music documentary collide in "AMERICAN INTERIOR" as Rhys uncovers Evans’ legacy to American, the true circumstances of his death, and his final resting place.
