Never in their wildest dreams could they have imagined the adventures, danger and trickery they would encounter along the way. Less than a few miles from home they run into a man known as Slim who happens to be a schizophrenic serial killer, tracking down and murdering hobos and tramps along the same route the young men have chosen.
Their journey becomes a quest for survival that takes them through small towns along the railroad tracks as they beg, work and even steal for food — all the while making friends of diverse homeless men looking for work from one town to another, and defending themselves from the ones who would do them harm.
