Just as the original hobos of the early 20th century were scorned by the mainstream of society, so too are today’s train riders. Over a year of traveling, the young train riders in Freeload seek adventure and answers on America’s freight trains. Freeload is a dive into a beggar’s existence – it is a ride through America’s backyard – it is a musical endeavour that feels like a drama – it is a sociological examination of the ignored. The allure of the road is infectious. One never forgets freedom once felt.
