An off-screen narrator, Mort Golden, takes us back to winter around 1975, the year he was 21. He and his two buddies, Tim and Danny, have a fateful trip over the bridge from Detroit into Canada. The three of them are going nowhere in life, although Mort has thoughts of being a writer, while his mom wants him to go to college. He and his pals contemplate making a quick fortune transporting drugs over the border in their beat-up Buick, "the war wagon." Mort's also hopelessly in love with a girl he dated briefly a couple years before. With border inspectors, Tim's temper, and Danny's bottled up emotions, is there any way this can end well?

This was a very good movie about friendship and loyalty, and what can happen when you decide to put everything on the line. It teaches a very good lesson about life, and climaxes at a moment of truth where the characters will make a decision that will determine the future of their lives. I suggest this movie to anyone who can enjoy a movie that might not have necessarily been the biggset blockbuster of all time, but was real and genuine, and about real people in the real world.
