"Stranded on a highway in the stark landscape of middle America, two teenage runaways cross paths and decide to head for Reno, Nevada. Both have criminal records and both are searching for parents who abandoned them years ago. Hitch hiking, hopping trains, stealing cars, and doging the law, the boys make their way across the country, into their pasts, and down into the subterranean land of their souls. The classic on-the-road story is the product of a gifted debut writer-director Ed Radtke, a juvenile felon who grew up to be a Guggenheim Fellow. Brilliantly manifested in the breakout performances of two ultra-intense young actors, Radtke's unique, first-hand experience of rebellion and disillusionment reverberates through this unequalled, sympathetic tale of juvenile delinquency."
