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
