In "THIS IS LIFE" , award-winning journalist and author Lisa Ling takes us on a gritty, breathtaking journey to far corners of America. Here, Ling introduces us to sub-cultures and communities that are unusual, extraordinary and sometimes dangerous; often getting people to share things that they haven't shared with their closest friends or even family members. Each hour-long episode, in the eight-part series, gives a raw and honest look into unconventional lifestyles that exist in our own backyard.
