DescriptionDocumentary exploring the culture of modern-day train hoppers. In the early 20th century, freighthopping became a common means of transportation, providing a quick and cheap way for migrant workers to travel. Although it is less common today, there still exists a number of people who use the freight trains as a means of embarking on a nomadic lifestyle. Over the course of eighteen months, film-maker Daniel T. Skaggs travels with them, providing insight into their motivations and their ambitions.
