At the bottom of the depression, Tom's mother has been out of work for months when Ed's father loses his job. Not to burden their parents, the two high school sophomore's decide to hop the freights and look for work. Wherever they go, there are many other kids just like them, so Tom, Ed and now Sally stick together. They camp in places like 'Sewer City' as long as they can until the local authorities run them off. They travel all over the mid west and when they get to New York, Ed thinks that they may finally find work.

About 15 minutes into the movie, the main character Eddie says to his father "I guess I'm just like my cousin Hoogo." This is a reference to a character from the 1920s and 1930s created by actor Jack Pearl. The character he created was Baron Munchausen. Munchausen told fanciful stories about his life, and they often involved his fictional cousin Hugo (pronounced Hoogo). Pearl played the character in musical reviews in the 1920s, and then in radio shows in the early 1930s. See more
