Summary
"[Silent film about] a train-hopping hobo who dresses like a boy to survive. After escaping her violent stepfather, Nancy befriends kindly drifter Jim. They ride the rails together until a fateful encounter with the blustery Oklahoma Red and his rambunctious band of hoboes, leading to daring, desperate conflict on top of a moving train. Based on the memoir of real-life hobo Jim Tully"--Container
