Storyline

An abandoned teen jumps a freight train in Philadelphia intent on reaching his uncle in Indiana, whom he believes will help him with financial difficulties including a pregnant girlfriend. In Ohio, he meets another homeless teen, who escorts him to his uncle. Finding his uncle equally broke, the duo head on to Oklahoma City to try to find the first teen's long-gone ex-con father. A confrontation between father and son send the duo on into exploits in the west including getting beaten up, busting into an Indian reservation church, and hitch-hiking with a beautiful nurse.

Honest, entertaining, great film
5 January 2002 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

I'm an amateur independent filmmaker and heard about this film showing at the local college theater, so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The film is very real and honest, but entertaining and humorous at times. This films characters tended to remind of me of people I know, very real and tangible. I recommend anyone to see this movie, and by the end you will be completely engulfed up in the story.
