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?Written by
The Bridge that is referred to in the film's title is The Ambassador Bridge that connects Michigan and Canada. The bridge was a part of Writer-Director Mike Binder's teenage youth growing up crossing it numerous times. See more »

This is one great movie that most people will pass up in the video store, because they've never heard of it. It reminded me of my own trials and tribulations growing up. I recommend this film to everyone sixteen years of age and older.
