    When journalist Beth Howard's husband dies suddenly, she packs up his RV and hits the American highways. At every stop along the way - whether filming a documentary or handing out free slices on the streets of Los Angeles - Beth uses pie as a way to find purpose. She eventually returns to her Iowa roots and creates the perfect synergy between two great American icons - pie and the American Gothic House, where she now lives and runs the Pitchfork Pie Stand.
