Storyline

This documentary explores the world of hobos and freight train hopping. Filmmaker Sarah George follows Switch and Baby Girl, two hobos who must give up the rails when Baby Girl becomes pregnant with child. We also meet Lee, who lives in the forest when he isn't riding the rails. We see hobo culture as an adventurous rejection of the modern humdrum of American life. Written by Martin Lewison <dr@martinlewison.com>

living, breathing and thinking...outside the box
9 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've watched this film twice: the first time because it was recommended to me, and the second because i wished to revisit the carefree quest for freedom that the film promotes. I do not feel that it suggests that people go trainhopping or break any laws. I do feel however, that it does a fine job of reminding those of us that live with the self-appointed boundaries of "normal" life that seeking freedom and self-expression should be a daily activity rather than a rare and infrequent one. I found the characters to be diverse and extremely eloquent, and their musings to be insightful humorous and inspirational. So if you're looking for a film that condemns alternative lifestyles and unconventional thinking, then this is not the film for you. However, if you wish to be witness to something truly liberating, consider watching Catching Out. Highly recommended.
