This poignant and carefully-researched documentary takes a stark look at the harsh realities behind the oft-romanticized view of the Depression-era hobo. The filmmakers got their stories from the reminiscences of 10 former vagabonds and archival footage to create an accurate, at times wrenching, view of the wanderer's struggle to survive.
