On April 17, Chad Parks, the founder and CEO of The Online 401(k) embarked on a six-week, 6,000-mile journey across the U.S. to raise awareness about the impending retirement crisis.

Parks (left), along with two cinematographers and two screenwriters are traveling from San Francisco to New York to interview Americans from all walks of life about their retirement saving habits and knowledge of retirement savings. The responses will be compiled into a documentary called "Broken Eggs: The Looming Retirement Crisis in America."

"We've gone into this without any expectations. We don't know how it will end up. We are speaking to so many people it will be eye opening to find out their needs and concerns. We are really trying to [humanize] this issue," Parks said. "It is not about the nuts and bolts of pension plans, actuaries and 401(k)s but people's quality of life. It will be interesting to see."
