The Seekers
Howard and Shane Fallon, Black Rock City, Nevada
Howard is trying to move through his grief after losing his wife and youngest child. Along with his surviving daughter, Shane, he decides to try something radical: Burning Man, an annual week-long celebration of self-expression that was founded as a place of transformation. Oprah calls it "the craziest party you ever saw." Executive producer Greg Henry agrees that it's "known as a place of excess. But it was one of the most powerful spaces imaginable, filled with grief, love, passion—and healing."
