Honk your horns and flash your headlights for America's great unsung heroes: truck drivers. Rolling the open road from east to west, bringing produce from the farm to the market, this colorful bunch are the backbone of the national economy. Searching truck stops far and wide, director Doug Pray (HYPE!) manages to convince a few of these asphalt cowboys to let him hop along for a ride in their rigs, and a little conversation along the road. The picture he gets is one of hardworking individuals who don't fit the trucker stereotype, and a way of life increasingly under threat by rising gas prices, corporatization, and government interference. It's a wild, fun, and ultimately moving road trip that's well worth taking.
