But on that road to success lies the tragedies of broken friendships with his band and broken hearts with his hometown sweetheart. Is the root to all his success in him or in this fated guitar? Will he forsake his friends and family to live his boyhood dream? 1 Way Ticket is the over-the-top influence of rock music and the kinetic energy of a haunted guitar, and it’s a volatile mix. 1 Way Ticket is about the temptations of taking shortcuts in life, and to the true measure of friendship.
