In August of 2003, Tyler Johnson was a prized scholar in theoretical physics. Months later he was homeless on the island of Corsica, a fugitive wanted by the FBI. For six years Tyler sent letters to his family, each containing cryptic clues about his condition. Then the letters stopped arriving. Using Tyler’s own words from his journal and interviews with those who knew him best, Finding Tyler explores the core struggle of life as a fugitive.
