Synopsis HeMoreLogline An abused teenager leaves home at age 13, he jumps up on a boxcar with dreams of being a cowboy. His romantic delusions of grandeur are quickly dashed when he finds that the life of a 13-year-old hobo is anything but carefree.

Synopsis He crisscrosses the western part of the U.S. riding freight trains. His adventures take him down a spiraling path of life-altering events. Its a brutal life, especially for a 13-year-old kid alone. He must learn to fend off sexual predators that are all too happy to befriend a hungry, tired young hitchhiker, as well as the infamous train cops hired to keep bums off the trains, the Railway Bulls who beat him to within a few breaths shy of losing his life. But when it almost seems too late, his spirit dares to reawaken when it seems there just might be a faint glimmer of hope left that could change his life...

An excerpt I was sitting on top of a boxcar, somewhere in California, fourteen years old at the time. It was getting dark and as the train was slowly going by a town, there were Christmas tree lights and decorations around the eaves and in windows, children were playing. I was sobbing uncontrollably, as I always wanted a happy Christmas Day when I was a child.
