Live Free or Die follows six members of a remote American subculture of self-proclaimed Primitives living in the backwoods, deserts, mountains and swamps across the country without any of the conveniences of modern society. Freed from the constraints of a technology-fueled existence, they are modern-day pioneers who rely only on their skill and intuition to harness the natural environment.   They face floods, black bears, blizzards, mosquitoes, arid desert, and torrential rain, all while living by a strict code to remain totally self-sufficient, despite the dangers.   But it is this very code, the difficulty of keeping it, and the potential to triumph over nature that fuel their desire to remain on these modern-day frontiers.
