John, a veteran truck driver nearing the 2 million mile mark in his career, is tasked with training Donna, a less seasoned operator whose experience is limited to local and in-town driving. Over the course of her training program John instructs Donna in not only the operation of the truck, but the attitude of the professional driver and how it influences the public perception of truck drivers.

The truck John and Donna are driving is a 1978 GMC Astro COE (cab over engine). It features a Detroit Diesel, most likely a 6V71 or 6V92.
