Ordinary Joe 1x54

On a quest to impact the lives of others and find a meaning for his own, Joe Sciacca—a blue-collar roofer and Vietnam War veteran from New York—returns annually to Vietnam, seeking out the poor, diseased, and disabled, and delivering to them his own brand of aid and hope. Driven by complex motives, this brash New Yorker has become an unlikely champion to a far away and seemingly forgotten people. Ordinary Joe follows Joe as he embarks on a multi-week trek from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, tripping back alleys and country roads on motorbikes, buses, taxis, and trains, visiting hundreds of people in need along the way. By adopting a do-it-yourself attitude, this “ordinary Joe” has set out on an extraordinary mission: to change the lives of hundreds of people and, in the process, find himself.
