A "little" film well worth seeing
20 September 2003 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Noticed this in Maltin's book, found it on a $1.99 sales shelf in the local video store. Interesting and thoughtful story about the son getting some hands-on experience driving a truck in his father's carpet factory, and experiencing the real and rather grim world of work. Very 70's in its point of view--and that's a compliment.
